Though Chipotle may be in an E. coli-related slump, that doesn’t appear to stop the burrito company from expanding.
Signage for the construction of D.C.’s newest Chipotle went up at 1010 Vermont Avenue NW some time earlier this week. When it opens, the forthcoming eatery will seat 29 people, according to building permits uncovered by the Washington Business Journal in September.
The new location will help fill in Chipotle’s presence downtown. Currently, the closest locations to 1010 Vermont Avenue NW are in the surrounding neighborhoods of Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Chinatown and Mount Vernon Triangle.
Rand Construction, the company constructing the new Chipotle, has built more than 40 Chipotles in the past.
