Why Chipotle Catering is Great for Parties and Groups


Are you a fan of Chipotle Mexican Grill?

Who isn’t??!! 

I LOVE their guacamole served with the barbacoa burrito bowl with ALL of the salsas on top.

My kids love going to Chipotle too. My older son’s proud moment came when he finally graduated to his own burrito so that he doesn’t have to share it with his brother.

I also love that their food is a healthier option that’s perfect for parties and groups.

Why I Love Chipotle Catering For Parties and Groups

I’ve used Chipolte Catering several times because it’s always a crowd-pleaser. It was so much easier to cater my son’s birthday party instead of making all of the food.

It would have also cost me more money to recreate a similar menu, plus supplies. Not to mention how much time I saved and that I don’t really enjoy cooking. 

Chipotle Catering is also a great option for group meetings. I’ve used it several times for catered lunches and it’s always a hit.

Another Perk of Chipotle Catering is the LEFTOVERS! 

I’ve found that the serving sizes from Chiptole Catering are pretty generous which means that we can enjoy another great meal another day.

They also provide all of the containers that make it easy to store leftovers. 

Food with Integrity

I love Chipotle’s mission to seek better food from using ingredients that are fresh.

They also strive where possible to source foods that are sustainably grown and Responsibly Raised™. It’s important for them that there is respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food.
