DENVER — The group office lunch can be a challenge. Multiple orders and multiple bags can make things tricky, particularly for the poor intern sent out on the unenviable lunch run. With that in mind, newly arrived Chipotle Mexican Grill recently announced a group ordering solution called Burritos by the Box, a streamlined system for placing bulk orders.
As of March 15, Canada’s first Chipotle location (323 Yonge Street at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto) has allowed customers to place orders of six or more burritos. As part of the program, customers will have the option to choose from chicken, steak, barbacoa, carnitas or vegetarian burritos, and the Chipotle crew will assemble them with the same core ingredients of rice, black beans, mild salsa and cheese.
Office foodies can also eat with a clearer conscience, knowing that the lunch fetcher was not overburdened and that Chipotle strives to offer local ingredients. Even at their sole Canadian operation 100 per cent of the pork and beef comes from sustainable sources, with pork from DuBreton in Quebec and beef and chicken from Beretta Farms, just outside of Toronto.
