As revealed by M&C Report at the start of this month, the company is on site at the 40 the Hill restaurant in the borough and plans to open during the first quarter of 2013 as part of a measured growth strategy. Shelley Sandzer handled the deal. The group, which is led by Jacob Sumner in the UK, currently operates five sites in the capital in St Martin’s Lane, Charing Cross Road, Wardour Street, Baker Street and Upper Street in Islington. It opened its first Paris restaurant this spring Rex Jones, executive director, International development Chipotle Mexican Grill. Said: "We are excited to be opening a sixth restaurant in London. This will be our second restaurant, after Islington, outside of central London. “Thanks to its location the restaurant will boast a large landscaped outdoor dining terrace.” The announcement coincides with news that Chipotle has been nominated for a Good Chicken Award and a Good Pig Award at the annual Good Animal Welfare Awards run by Compassion in World Farming set to take place on 27 September. The company was praised for its ‘Food with Integrity’ approach to the sourcing of its raw ingredients but in particular for its commitment to using free range pigs for its pork ‘carnitas’ and RSPCA Freedom Food certified poultry for its chicken dishes.
