A Declaration of Love for Chipotle's iPhone App

There are many reasons to be a fan of Chipotle.  Let me count just a few of the ways...

  • Their usage of fresh ingredients
  • Their serving of Niman Ranch steak
  • Their serving of chicken raised without antibiotics or growth hormones
  • Their sensitivity to various food allergies
  • Their if-we've-got-the-ingredients-we-can-make-it attitude/policy
  • Their ambiance
  • Their serving of of beer

Etc, etc

Just when I didn't think Chipotle could possibly get any cooler, or that I could feel anymore love for them than I already did, they up and adapted technology and social media into their business.  Since I'm a fanatic of both, that just made my heart pitter patter.  You know what sent my heart into a frenzy though?  Their awesome and incredibly informative iPhone application.

With just a few flicks of the finger, I can get their menu options described to me in detail.  I can also read up on the company mission statement, philosophy, and practices, as well as look up Chipotle locations.  Most important and impressive of all though -- I can order food from the app!

I simply set up a Chipotle account and save my info, including payment information, then I'm set to order to my heart's content.  

You start out by picking a main course, either a burrito, taco, salad, or a bowl.  Then you choose a main filling for it, either chicken, steak, pork, or  veggie.  Then comes the fun part -- picking all the other ingredients and condiments that you'd like in it, including salsa, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole, etc.  


Another nice thing about the app is that as you're ordering, it tells you if any of the additions will cost extra, and if so, how much, all the while tallying up your cost.  At the end of your order, you can add drinks and other sides.  Then you mosey on over to the Chipotle from which you ordered from, cut the line and pick up your burrito/bowl/tacos/salad/what have you, all paid for.

The icing on the cake?  How gorgeous this app is.  On top of being informative and easy to use, it looks fantastic.  Kudos to the developers.

You know where to find me at lunch today.  With this app, though, I'll be in and out of the store so fast that you wouldn't even know I was there ;)

I'm still awaiting iPhone 5, LOL... seems like Apple is taking its sweet time just as your reviews! You are taking a break these days? ;-)

I think the Chipotle App might be my favorite "Travel App". Whenever I'm a new city, I always pull up the app to see how far I am from the nearest Chipotle!

Haha, fortunately for us hardcore Chipotle fans -- they're popping up everywhere!

Wow ! This is amazing, I probably spend at least 40 bucks a week at Chipotle! I can't wait till Verizon gets the iphone and I can access this feature!

*high five!* Or maybe you can write to Chipotle to get them to make apps on more mobile platforms ;)

You can cook better than Chipotle!
January 07, 2011
If only there was an app for that, too... :P
January 07, 2011
Um, you could be entrepreneurial and launch your own cooking app :P You know you really could launch a bunch of things... The best businesses are started for fun, like you were saying :) Think on it :)

That's pretty neat. I need to try this one, not too big on Chipotle but I do like them. I usually go to 24th and the one in the Rincon center for my burritos . Nice one!

I use to not be big on Chipotle because I expected them to be real Mexican food, but once I got over that, I started feeling the love for them. I stick to the good old Berkeley location :D Thanks for reading, Woo!
