Opening of Wenatchee Chipotle delayed but expected to happen Monday


The new Chipotle Mexican Grill in Wenatchee is now expected to open this Monday, a company spokesperson said.

The company originally had targeted a Nov. 30 opening.

The Monday opening is still tentative, the company said.

The new restaurant will be at 1121 North Mission, the site of the former Café Rio.

The Wenatchee restaurant will be the 40th Chipotle in Washington state but only the third east of the Cascades. There are about 2,500 Chipotle restaurants worldwide.

The company said the Wenatchee restaurant will employ about 25 people.
