It was just little more than a week ago that Chipotle Mexican Grill opened a new Loganville restaurant featuring a Chipotlane, a drive-thru pickup lane allowing customers to pick up digital orders without leaving their cars! And then… COVID-19 hit. The restaurant has now put out a press release announcing that “due to recent world events, the new restaurant – located at 4112 Atlanta Hwy, Loganville, GA 30052 – is open for takeout, mobile pick-up and delivery only.”
Chipotle customers can place delivery orders via the Chipotle app for Apple or Android, or order online at Chipotle.com. Chipotle has also introduced a tamper evident packaging seal for mobile pick-up and delivery orders. Customers can leave instructions in the app and online to request contactless deliveries. Chipotle even introduced a new delivery tracker to provide step-by-step, real-time updates so you can follow your meal from the restaurant to your location. And, when you sign up for Chipotle Rewards, you receive free chips and guac after your first purchase, and then 10 points for every $1 spent, with 1,250 points resulting in a free entrée.
To show appreciation for those who are willing and able to work during this time, Chipotle is offering assistance pay, or a 10% increase in hourly pay for restaurant employees who work between March 16 and April 12, 2020, including those at the new Loganville restaurant. Plus, through expanded emergency leave benefits, employees directly affected by COVID-19 may receive pay equal to their upcoming 2-week schedule or average hours worked, whichever is greater.
Chipotle’s Delivery Kitchens feature a dedicated ingredient stations operated by a special team, allowing Loganville burrito lovers to enjoy the customizable Chipotle experience wherever they choose to dine. The Loganville restaurant is open every day from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Chipotle locations provide an average of 25 jobs per location, offering residents the opportunity to receive competitive benefits, including a crew bonus that gives restaurant employees the opportunity to earn an extra month’s worth of pay each year. Additionally, Chipotle offers a debt-free degree program for eligible employees to pursue a free college degree, tuition reimbursement, as well as English as a second language and access to mental healthcare for employees and their families.
