REJOICE! — Chipotle Is Launching A Delivery Service At College Campuses

Back in April, Chipotle announced a food delivery partnership with the Postmates app, bringing hot burritos to your door if you happen to live in a major metropolitan area. Today the next phase of delivery Chipotle has been realized — Delivery on college campuses. This means you’ll be able to crush those chicken bowls while cramming in the library without having to get up to leave. Or on the couch while brutally hungover on a Sunday afternoon.

Chipotle delivery comes via a partnership with Tapingo, a food pickup and delivery app that isn’t called “Seamless” or “Grubhub.” Here’s how the partnership was announced via the press release:

“Chipotle has been popular with students going back to our very first restaurant near the University of Denver, and we are always looking for ways to better engage with them,” said Mark Crumpacker, chief creative and development officer at Chipotle. “Tapingo, which has been well received by students where its services are available, knows how to connect with these younger customers. That shared acceptance among younger customers made them a great choice for us to expand delivery aimed specifically at students.”

Tapingo has a rapidly growing user base, the large majority of whom are Millennials and Gen Zs. Chipotle resonates well with a similar audience. A recent survey by investment firm William Blair called Chipotle the “most favored restaurant” by younger consumers. Morgan Stanley notes that Millennials are more likely to dine out on a weekly basis than older consumers and states that “taste, value, and quality” drive their restaurant decision-making. “On those metrics, Chipotle wins,” the firm says.

Chipotle delivery is currently available via Tapingo at these campuses, starting today:

  • Arizona State University
