Abstract: The builders of a $22 billion burrito empire—the founder, his father, his college buddies, key execs, and a couple of pig farmers—open up about how they won the fast-food future. And yes, they dish about McDonald’s. Chipotle’s commitment to fresh, high-quality ingredients, to the point that employees slice hundreds of thousands of pounds of tomatoes a day manually, but still only charge slightly higher prices. The combination of affordable and fresh has helped to define a new wave of “fast casual” dining.
