Ground broken for new Chipotle

Ground broken for new Chipotle


MADISON — The survey said Chipotle and ground was broken here Wednesday morning.

“We did a survey a few months ago and the number one vote was for a new Chipotle,” Mayor Mary Hawkins-Butler said at the groundbreaking. “That is what the children wanted. We had to find the right spot and this will be the number one Chipotle in the country. Thank you for choosing Madison and being a part of this community.” 

The new restaurant is on Grandview Boulevard behind Zaxby’s. 

Hawkins-Butler, aldermen, other city officials, business leaders and Chipotle representatives were present for the groundbreaking. 

Sandra Montgomery, general manager for the future Madison Chipotle, said she is very excited about the new location. 

“We’re trying to build the right thing to provide exceptional service to the Madison community,” Montgomery said. “The service we’re going to provide will make this location stand out. We’re excited and glad to be a part of this. We’re looking forward to what this will being to the city and Chipotle.” 

Hawkins-Butler said the new Chipotle will make a lot of children and young people in Madison very happy. 

Alderman approved the restaurant in October and it is set to open by late summer. 

The Madison location is one of two Chipotle restaurants coming to Madison County. The other location is on E. County Line Road in the old Shrimp Basket location in Ridgeland across from the Hilton. 

Chipotle was founded in Denver, Colorado, in 1993, and has become one of the most famous Mexican fast-casual chains in the country, with 2,918 locations throughout the United States and 44 international locations. 

The chain is known for its menu of classic burritos, burrito bowls, quesadillas, salads, and tacos. They also offer kids’ meals, a variety of sides and drinks, and catering for parties of groups of up to 200.
