Channel 3 has learned that Chipotle Mexican Grill will soon have a Chattanooga location, confirming the expansion plans Thursday.
While the desire for the restaurant runs deep, Chipotle comes to town and will face well-established competitors like Mojo Burrito and Dos Bros, both offering similar fare and (relatively) native to the Scenic City.
Currently, the closest Chipotle locations are in Atlanta, Knoxville and Murfreesboro.
The general manager post on Indeed.com says 'New Restaurant Opening in Chattanooga!' and outlines the job requirements.
A spokesperson for Chipotle tells Channel 3 'We are currently scheduled to open a location in Chattanooga at some point this fall.'
