Chipotle will be available on Uber Eats in Canada with delivery fees waived starting today
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 14, 2020 /CNW/ -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) and Uber Eats today announced a delivery partnership in Canada. For the first time, fans in Canada can get the Chipotle food they love delivered through the Uber Eats app and ubereats.com. Today through May 20, the Delivery Fee will be waived on any Chipotle order $12 or greater on the Uber Eats app and ubereats.com. Service fee applies.
"We're continuing to find ways to leverage key partners to grow our delivery footprint for Canadian customers," said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. "With Chipotle launching on Uber Eats in Canada, it's never been easier for fans to get our real food delivered to their homes."
Given the current world climate, Chipotle and Uber Eats are working together to make the delivery experience easier for fans. Uber Eats users can leave a note in the app for "no-contact" deliveries, which involve a driver leaving the food at the doorstep rather than an in-person exchange. Digital orders from Chipotle are customized via the brand's Digital Kitchens, which are comprised of a dedicated ingredient station and operated by a special team in nearly all Chipotle locations.
"At Uber Eats, we are on a mission to make eating well effortless for everyone, everywhere," said Lola Kassim, General Manager of Uber Eats Canada. "We could not be more excited to finally deliver delicious Chipotle burritos, bowls, and sides to customers within the comfort of their own homes here in Canada. We know that adding Chipotle to our current offerings will bring joy to our eaters with the tap of a button."
Chipotle and Uber Eats announced a national partnership in the U.S. last month. Both teams have been working closely on this fully integrated partnership to ensure a smooth experience for in-restaurant teams and for Chipotle fans and eaters across the U.S. and Canada. The partnership with Uber Eats is another way Chipotle is working to grow its digital and delivery business. Digital sales grew 80.8% in first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year, and to accommodate the increase in digital and delivery, Chipotle is installing new in-restaurant features to increase convenience for customers and delivery partners. Premium placement for digital built in pick-up portals allow delivery drivers to retrieve food quickly and efficiently.
The Uber Eats $0 delivery discount will be applied automatically to users accounts and will expire at 11:55pm PT on 5/20/2020. The offer is valid for a $0 Delivery Fee on orders of $12 or more (before taxes and fees). Taxes and a 10% Service Fee still apply. Offer may not be combined with other offers. See the Uber Eats app for details.
