Confirmed! Chipotle is on its Way to Eau Claire
You may have heard rumblings in the underground world of restaurant franchising, and now Volume One can finally confirm what you’ve been waiting to hear: Eau Claire is getting a Chipotle. Ayres Associates confirmed that they are heading up the construction of a Chipotle (with Commonweal Development) to be built in the Oakwood Mall area where the current A&W resides. This news is sure to have both fans of socially conscious food and fans of burritos the size of their head in a tizzy. There is no word on what this could potentially mean for our own local current kings of the mega-burrito, Burrachos, but I’d like to think we live in a world where two places stocked full of cheese and pinto beans can peacefully coexist. I mean, if Domino’s and Pizza Hut can do it, anyone can.
