Chipotle chugging along

Chipotle Mexican Grill continues to chug along on a new location here in Milledgeville. The roof is up, as are the interior walls. The restaurant will occupy the northeast corner of North Columbia Street and Dunlap Road and be next-door neighbors with Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen. 

The Milledgeville location will be the third in Middle Georgia, joining the one on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard in Macon and the one near the Air Force base in Warner Robins.

Sally Evans, a media relations analyst with Chipotle, previously relayed to Baldwin2k News earlier this week that "we are currently scheduled to open a location in Milledgeville at some point this fall." Evans added that much more information would be available closer to the grand opening.

The artist rendering above will be the view from the corner of North Columbia and Dunlap Road. According to the architectural drawings, the new Chipotle will have a 20-seat patio, as well as inside seating for 42, bringing its total seating to 62.

The development group that owns the property previously took over the old "Toyota dealership" property and divided it into three commercial parcels. The first was quickly gobbled up by Panda Express, and later came Popeye's. The final parcel sat idle for several years before Chipotle came on board.

From the order of the ingredients behind the counter all the way to the silver foil that the burritos are wrapped in, Chipotle will be remarkably similar to Barberito's, located downtown, and Surcheros, located on Roberson Mill Road by Applebee's.
