During a quarterly earnings call with investors on Tuesday, Chipotle CEO Steve Ells mentioned that the company is considering adding things like "salads and different kinds of grains" as well as nachos and quesadillas. However, while he said that customers are asking for them, he went on to explain that integrating new items and ingredients without totally disrupting the flow of the kitchen (and the brand's supply chain) is a "tricky proposition," but that their development teams are working on it.
In terms of when you might be able to opt for a quesadilla or order of nachos instead of your go-to burrito bowl, the release timeline isn't clear. It's also possible these potential new offerings won't even make it past the test kitchen phase (much like its first-ever dessert was put "on hold" last year after a disappointing trial run.)
We reached out to Chipotle, and they declined to provide any more details.
