In addition to the news about closures, Wednesday's call with investors also included more exciting details. It teased plans to introduce a happy hour promotion during off-peak hours that will include $2 tacos and alcoholic drinks, and that you'll soon be able to order delivery through the Chipotle app from around 2,000 stores around the country. Also, execs said the chain is getting ready to roll out a loyalty program, which it will reportedly begin testing in the second half of this year.
At the moment, it's unclear exactly which 65 Chipotle locations -- less than 3% of its total footprint in the US -- are on the chopping block. However, the company did say that the closures will include five of the seven remaining locations of its fast-casual pizza chain, Pizzeria Locale. Then again, it's probably safe to assume that if the Chipotle(s) you frequent are generally busy and buzzing during peak hours, they're safe from the ax.
