Why Are Rochester’s Chipotles Closed Today
Over the lunch hour, we received a few calls and a handful of messages on Facebook from listeners wondering why both Chipotles in Rochester were closed today. I love those dang burritos so my heart sank fearing the worse.
I hadn't heard anything on the news so I decided to call to find out what was going on. I tried both locations, but no one answered, and the sadness in my heart grew.
I decided to drive by to see if anyone was there. I hopped in my car and headed over to the south Broadway location. The parking lot was packed and there was a crowd of 12-15 people waiting outside the restaurant for their food. I exhaled. The sign below was posted to their front door though.
I was unable to connect with an employee for more information so I headed to the NW location to make sure they were open too. When I arrived, I found an empty parking lot, no sign of customers or employees, and this sign.
So yeah, it looks like a temporary shutdown. I'll let you know if I hear anything else. In the meantime, you can satisfy your burrito craving by ordering to-go from the south location.
