Chipotle Mexican Grill has announced some big expansion plans for the Canadian market. The American chain of fast-casual restaurants will be opening eight new locations over the next year, including Canada’s first “Chipotlane” concept.
The first new location to open in BC will be a Surrey store, which is slated to welcome its first customers on March 30, 2021. This will be the brand’s first Canadian restaurant to open since October 2018.
