DENVER — Chipotle Mexican Grill is bringing “Sofritas” to Canada. This vegan tofu filling will be served in its Toronto and Vancouver stores starting Monday, according to Canadian Business.
The Denver-based chain began testing Sofritas in parts of the U.S. last year. “Vegetarians account for about seven per cent to 10 per cent of Chipotle’s business,” said Chris Arnold, communications director, in an interview with Peter Nowak, Canadian Business reporter.
The restaurant chain is also looking into new and innovative fast-casual dining concepts. Their small pizza chain in Denver, Pizza Locale, is experimenting with cooking pizza in two minutes, using a rotating oven, quality ingredients and fresh pizzas made to order.[canadianbusiness.com]
