Chipotle to open first drive-thru lane at new Cobb restaurant

Chipotle Mexican Grill will open its newest Cobb County restaurant with a more convenient option for customers who are short on time.

The company on Tuesday, July 9 will open its fast-casual restaurant at 3606 Sandy Plains Road in Marietta featuring its first Chipotlane, a drive-thru pickup lane so patrons can retrieve their digital orders without leaving their cars.

On Aug. 13, Chipotle will open another Atlanta location at 1080 Peachtree Street in Midtown, bringing the total number of restaurants across Georgia to 53. Chipotle will give away 50 free T-shirts at each opening, the company said.

Both locations will be open daily from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. Laurie Schalow, Chipotle’s chief corporate reputation officer, said each store has about 25 employees. She also said Chipotle would like to open several dozen Chipotlane locations across the country.

Chipotle is hiring for a number of positions at the Marietta location. You can visit the restaurant's website to peruse the positions.
