FRESNO, Calif. – Chipotle Mexican Grill will soon be serving up its tasty burritos, tacos, salads and other items when it opens its new Fresno restaurant on the corner of Cedar and Shaw in Fresno across from Fresno State early next year.

Chipotle representative Danielle Winslow said the restaurants, which serve lunch and dinner dishes, usually are opened in places with a good amount of daytime and nighttime activity.

“Most of our restaurants are located close to other retail spaces, or college campuses such as Fresno State,” Winslow said.  “So we just think it would be a good expansion of our business in that area, and that we will do pretty well there.”

Winslow said construction on the new restaurant began in September, and that it will bring roughly 30 new jobs to the area.  Most employees start out on the Chipotle crew, working on the line preparing your made-to-order dishes right before your eyes, or on the cash register.  From the crew one can become kitchen manager, apprentice or even a restaurateur.

“There’s a lot of career opportunities to make it more than just a part-time job, but a full-time career with the potential of earning up to $100,000 a year,” Winslow said.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is an international chain of restaurants, with locations across the United States as well as a few in the United Kingdom, along with one in Paris, Toronto and Vancouver.  There are currently about 1,350 Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in operation, and this new location will be the third in Fresno.
