Is Chipotle open or closed for Easter 2022? What are the store hours? Unfortunately, if you’re wanting to enjoy a burrito or burrito bowl on Easter this year, Chipotle is not an option. The chain’s stores are closed today.
Chipotle Locations Are Closed for Easter
Chipotle locations are closed for Easter this year. This will allow employees to celebrate Easter with their families and enjoy some much-needed time off.
A representative told Heavy: “All Chipotle restaurants will be closed on Sunday, April 17 for Easter.”
Chipotle restaurants are expected to reopen for their regular hours on Monday.
If you’re still holding out hope that your store is an exception, you can check the Chipotle near you just to be sure. To find a location near you, you can either go to Chipotle’s online ordering system here and choose pickup or delivery, or you can view a full list of Chipotle locations here and look at the ones in your state.
Chipotle has a new item that you can enjoy once you visit again after Easter.
The new flavor is pollo asado, and it’s available for a limited time.
Chipotle describes the flavor this way:
Chipotle’s first chicken menu innovation in its 29-year history, Pollo Asado’s elevated flavor profile offers a new take on your go-to order. Grilled fresh and prepared daily in small batches, Responsibly Raised® chicken is tumbled in a spice blend before being seared on the plancha. Pollo Asado is then hand-chopped into tender, juicy bites and is brought to life with a bright marinade, fresh squeezed lime, and cilantro.
“Chicken is easily our most popular protein, with many of our most loyal Chipotle customers ordering it the majority of the time,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re thrilled to introduce fans to another flavor of chicken that brings a whole new dimension to any Chipotle order and will certainly be a crowd pleaser.”
Chipotle also recently launched plant-based chorizo as another protein option, also available for a limited time. The chain describes the new protein this way:
Chipotle’s Plant-Based Chorizo has the deep, rich flavor and a slight kick that chorizo fans crave. Chipotle peppers, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil combine with natural protein from freshly grown peas to deliver a full-flavored vegan protein that guests will love, whether they’re committed to a meatless diet or trying plant-based protein for the first time. Plant-Based Chorizo is certified vegan, packed with 16 grams of protein per 4oz serving, and is made without artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, grains, gluten, or soy.
