Given a week's time, the test will expand to Denver, the company's home base. Company officials have noted previous difficulty with cooking chicken chorizo on the chain's already established grooved griddles. Notably, the availability of the new protein would mark a rather significant addition in Chipotle's rarely altered menu.
In the same NRN report cited above, Mark Kalinowski of Janney Capital Markets gave some further insight into Chorizo's potential systemwide rollout. Prices for a chicken chorizo burrito in Manhattan ranged from $7.35 and $7.81 and the chorizo was put together with "naturally raised pork and chicken sausage with herbs and spices."
