I'm calling it, the long running rumor of the Chipotle Mexican Grill chain opening in Coeur d' Alene is true. I now have multiple reliable resources saying that the company has signed a letter of intent locally with building permits and official announcements coming in the near future.
The new Coeur d' Alene Chipotle Mexican Grill will be built along Appleway near the intersection of Appleway and US 95. Design work on this new location is already underway, but there is no opening date yet. The building will actually be a new construction raising from what is currently a parking lot by the existing Tomato Street Restaurant.
As of now no construction has started, so no hiring has started. We will keep checking for news on the job front including how many jobs this new business will create.
Chipotle Mexican Grill already has a location in Spokane, which will also remain open. That location is at 930 N. Division in the University District.
