What makes Chipotle Mexican Grill a ‘value leader’ among Mexican fast-casual restaurants

NRN editor Lisa Jennings explains a new Wall Street report in this episode of First Bite


Chipotle was recently revealed to be a value leader among fast-casual Mexican restaurant chains, according to a Wall Street analyst. In a story for Nation’s Restaurant News last week, executive editor Lisa Jennings wrote about the specifics of the survey, including the conclusions that Chipotle has room for more price hikes and that the chain holds the spot as the least expensive chain among certain competitors.

Today on First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, Jennings spoke about what she thinks about recent price hikes at Chipotle, what her predictions are for the chain and what she sees for the future of the brand ahead of its next earnings call at the end of the month.
