Beware Chipotle lovers, there may be an across-the-board price increase in 2014, according to Reuters.
Chipotle founder and CEO Steve Ells announced during an investor conference call that next year menu prices may increase anywhere from 3 percent to 5 percent. The reason for this is because they have to keep up with the price increase of California avocados and salsa. In addition, non-GMO meats, cooking oil, and tortillas can be costly.
Why are people so in love with the fast-food Mexican grill? Their menu offers burritos, burrito bowls, crispy tacos, soft tacos, salads, chips and guac, and a kid’s menu where you can customize your toppings. Chipotle caters to carnivores, vegetarians, and those looking to eat light. The prices vary depending on how many toppings you wish to have.
