Shreveport! Chipotle is only a few days away!

Shreveport-Bossier’s first Chipotle restaurant will be opening this Wednesday right on Youree Drive near Target.  What makes the popular Mexican grill different?

“We’re an all-fresh concept so we know where our food comes from,” Chipotle’s Kirk LeMaire told 710 KEEL.  “Our meats are naturally raised, meaning no hormones, no anti-biotics, fed an all vegetarian diet, humanely raised.  We have no canopeners, freezers or microwaves in our restaurants.”

“It’s really great tasting food,” LeMaire continued.  “Just because it’s served fast in a fast, casual environment it doesn’t have to taste fast as compared to our competitors.”

Chipotle is a welcome addition to the Youree Drive business district in southeast Shreveport, joining neighbors like Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, Panera and many others.  So, why did it take so long for Shreveport to get a Chipotle?

“It just takes us a while for us to get into some remote markets,” responded LeMaire.  “We need to make sure that we have enough managers and we can find the right teams.  Our real estate [team] is trying to keep up as best as they can moving into new markets.”

Chipotle will open its doors to the public Wednesday at 11 a.m.  The next closest Chipotle is in south Tyler.
