Chipotle Mexican Grill has teamed up with a third party to offer delivery at 40 college campuses nationwide this fall and at more than 100 campuses by spring.
According to Mark Crumpacker, chief creative and development officer at Chipotle, the burrito-chain has been popular with students going back to the very first restaurant near the University of Denver and is always looking for ways to better engage with them.
Chipotle’s partner in the intiative, the supplier of an app-based service called Tapingo, “knows how to connect with these younger customers,” Crumpacker said in a statement.
The partnership is in addition to Chipotle’s delivery arrangements with Postmates and OrderUp.
Currently, Chipotle delivery is available through Tapingo at Arizona State University, California State University Chico, Louisiana State University, University of Arizona, University of Southern California and Northern Arizona University.
