Chipotle Testing BBQ
Chipotle is going to start testing brisket in some of its restaurants. I’m a big BBQ guy so the idea of a brisket burrito from Chipotle sounds really good. A good brisket doesn’t really need a sauce, but Chipotle says they’ve created a BBQ sauce to go along with it.
Chipotle CEO Brian Niccol told Yahoo Finance: “It’s got a terrific taste profile and we’ve got this Chipotle barbecue sauce that goes on it. I think it’s spectacular. We got to put it in to test and see how consumers react, but I’m pretty optimistic.”
I think it will test well and if it does it will roll out to all Chipotle locations. Niccol said the chain is also testing new rice: “We're continuing to experiment. We have the cauliflower rice that we're testing.
