Chipotle - Coming Soon to Hauppauge!
The up and coming Mexican restaurant franchise is establishing itself on Long Island. The newest additional location will be at 694 Motor Parkway, which is in Hauppauge in the new Motor Parkway Plaza shopping center.
Chipotle is more than just your average Mexican fast food stop. They carefully select the source of meats they use to prepare for your meal. They take great pride in providing meats which were prepared from “naturally-raised animals.” This term means that the animals were raised in a humane way, fed a vegetarian diet, never given hormones, and allowed to display their natural tendencies. Over 35% of dairy served at Chipotle comes from pasture-raised cows, and the company is working hard to assure its poultry and pork have the same standards as well.
If you’ve never heard of Chipotle, or wonder where they came from, you can visit their website to get the complete story from their start as a small business, to the most recent achievements of the franchise. They started business in 1993, forming the first Chipotle restaurant from a former Dolly Madison in Colorado. After only two years they expanded to three locations, and in 1999 they spread the company outside of Colorado and welcomed outside investors.To learn about the food, nutritional facts and more you can find their site on the web. It can give you much insight to who the company is and what they’re all about.
Unlike most other restaurants, at Chipotle your meal is prepared right in front of you. You simply pick which ingredients you want to add, and soon after you’ll have burritos, tacos or a salad personalized to your liking. The food tastes fresh, clean, and most importantly healthier than its competitors. Thirsty? Along with soda and bottled drinks, Chipotle serves beer and margaritas to those over 21.
It's unclear exactly when the restaurant is due to open its doors, but almost all other businesses are now open in the recently built Motor Parkway Plaza. Be sure to check it out next time you're in the area.
