Chipotle Mexican Grill Deals: Chipotle Delivery Offers Sales To 40 Colleges In 2015

Exciting news, college students! Chipotle Mexican Grill has announced that they will be offering Chipotle delivery to 40 college campuses this fall with the delivery company Tapingo, a food-delivery app specifically for the college market, according to ABC News.

Chipotle partnered with Postmates and OrderUp to start delivering to a broader market earlier this year, USA Today reports. However, this is the first time that Chipotle will be offering deliveries specifically targeted at college students. Currently, the service is available at six schools, but the restaurant chain plans on expanding that this fall, and are hoping to have over a hundred by spring 2016. This is all a part of their initiative to stay popular with the younger population. Depending on the order, and the market, Tapingo will charge anywhere from $1.99 to $4.99 for their delivery fee.

“Chipotle has been popular with students going back to our very first restaurant near the University of Denver, and we are always looking for ways to better engage with them,” Mark Crumpacker, the chief creative and development officer at Chipotle, said in a statement on Tuesday, September 1.

“Tapingo has become the buy button for students and we are excited to expand into surrounding areas,” Daniel Almog, Tapingo CEO, said in a statement. “Our network of students is hungry for Chipotle, and we’re excited to deliver it quickly and at a very reasonable delivery cost.”
