Newport Beach, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) announced today the return of Boorito, its annual Halloween celebration. On Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 3 p.m. to closing, customers who are in costume at all Chipotle locations in the U.S. and Canada can order a burrito, bowl, salad or tacos for only $4. Customers can also receive the same deal through the Chipotle app or online (for both pickup and delivery) by using the code “BOORITO.”
“Boorito is a longstanding Chipotle tradition that’s beloved by our fans,” said Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer at Chipotle. “We love contributing to the Halloween spirit and seeing our customers show off their fun, creative costumes to celebrate Halloween and enjoy some of their favorite food.”
Chipotle will also be taking the celebration to social media, holding an Instagram costume contest on Halloween. To enter, Chipotle fans must post a photo of themselves in costume, at a Chipotle restaurant, on their Instagram profile or Instagram Story and tag @Chipotle. Chipotle will then select eight finalists and post the contestants’ photos on the brand’s Instagram Story.
