Chipotle has long been a champion for education and literacy. The company has provided reading rewards for libraries across the United States' summer reading programs, offers tuition reimbursement to their employees and partners with Guild Education to provide discounted tuition programs for employees as well.
Earlier this year, Chipotle also unveiled "RAD Lands," an unbranded, educational video series for kids about food and where it comes from, available through Discovery Education. The program gives teachers and parents tools to educate children on the benefits of eating fresh food, the importance of caring for our environment and how to create healthy, tasty snacks.

Steve Ells, Founder, Chairman and CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in an interactive style allowing people to get exactly what they want. Chipotle seeks out extraordinary ingredients that are not only fresh, but that are raised responsibly, with respect for the animals, land, and people who produce them. Chipotle prepares its food using whole, unprocessed ingredients and is the only national restaurant brand that uses of added colors, flavors or other additives typically found in fast food. Chipotle opened with a single restaurant in Denver in 1993 and now operates more than 2,200 restaurants. For more information, visit Chipotle.com
