Meet Gracie, Restaurateur

Do you remember what you were doing 13 years ago? Chipotle team member Gracie does – that was when she first walked through the doors of a Chipotle and found where she truly belonged. Recently promoted to Restaurateur, Gracie has built a career with Chipotle over the past decade and has no plans on stopping here. The best part? Now she gets to help other launch their careers, too.

“The most rewarding aspect is … seeing how someone who came in looking for a part-time job found a career instead.”
