  • To celebrate American athletes, gold foil-wrapped burrito's by Chipotle

Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) announced this week it will be serving gold foil-wrapped burritos for a limited time at participating locations in-restaurant and through digital orders starting today, July 23. The limited-edition gold foil will celebrate American athletes competing in Tokyo and rally fans to cheer on first place finishes over the next three weeks.
