Chipotle’s press release

What is known about the company? Chipotle is a chain of Mexican restaurants specializing in burritos and tacos. The chain has locations in cities in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, and France. Since June, restaurants in the United States began accepting cryptocurrency payments through the Flexa platform.

Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer at Chipotle, said that the company wants “to build the next generation of Chipotle fandom by connecting with the Web 3.0 community.”
