Chipotle Wants You Back, and They'll Give You Booze For It

Chipotle Wants You Back, and They'll Give You Booze For It

Chipotle hasn’t been doing so well these last few years, mainly due to its repeated poisoning of its customers. With profits plummeting by almost a quarter recently, there’s only one thing Chipotle seems think will help its business: giving away free alcohol.

The deal is only offered in a few spots — specifically, 300 Chipotle locations throughout the Midwest (this may be due to the fact that states such as Oregon have made any booze promotional deals illegal). Shops in Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin offer two-for-one deals on margaritas and beers, while Kansas and Ohio are offering half off alcoholic drinks. The deals are available during the hours of 4 PM - 8 PM, and there is a limit of one per customer.

The deals are an attempt to bring customers to the front door, and press packets have been released to sites such as Business Insider. However, sites such as The Consumerist have found that there is little to no promotion for it at the restaurants.

 Will this be the recovery that Chipotle needs to right its business? It’s unclear. People enjoy free or cheap alcohol, though they likely enjoy a life free of E. Coli more. Hopefully Chipotle will sort out its food problems, and we can enjoy their burritos and two-for-one margs safely from here on out.
