Slide 3 The Idea The idea for Chipotle (pronounced chi- POAT-lay) is simple: Offer a simple menu of great food prepared fresh each day, using many of the same cooking techniques as gourmet restaurants. Then serve the food quickly, in a cool atmosphere.
Slide 4 The Sandbox: Fast-Casual We compete in a category of dining called fast- casualthe fastest growing segment of the restaurant industry. The fast-casual market pulls together the finer qualities of multiple restaurant sectors. It takes the fast from fast-food, the quality and ambience of casual dining, and adds a focus on health and freshness, all at an average ticket price below $10. Because of these appealing characteristics, sales for the market have grown at an average of 12.5% per year since 2001.
Slide 5 The Business Model Using higher-quality ingredients. We use a variety of ingredients that we purchase from carefully selected suppliers. We concentrate on where we obtain each ingredient. Some of the ingredients we use include naturally raised pork, beef and chicken, as well as organically grown produce, and we continue to investigate using even more naturally raised, organically grown ingredients, in light of pricing considerations. A few things, thousands of ways. We only serve a few things: burritos, burrito bols (a burrito without the tortilla), tacos and salads. We plan to keep a simple menu, but we'll always consider sensible additions.
Slide 7 And Finish Up… A focused menu. You choose exactly what you want. We make it while you watch. That may mean a little more salsa, a little less sour cream, whatever you'd like. Build your version of the perfect burrito. Price of Desire: About 5 Bucks.
Slide 9 The Customer The primary customer for Chipotles is between the ages of 25 and 54. The customer is slightly older than the typical fast- food customer mainly due to their desire for a more healthy menu without sacrificing speed. These customers desire a… –Focus on freshness, with products made to order, and excluding the use of frozen ingredients and microwaves –Focus on innovative flavors, including condiments that fuse elements from distinct cuisines –Focus on consumer choice, sometimes provided through extensive selection of condiments, but frequently extended to complete control of product content –Focus on health, including whole-grain, and organic, as well as trans-fat and MSG free ingredients

Slide 24 The Competition Qdoba, is a fresh-Mex chain that offers more choices, like poblano pesto burritos, but less discipline in its execution. Its wider menu offerings sometimes compromise food quality. Nonetheless, Qdoba is a series competitor in all respects as it plays in the same sand box. In 2003, Qdoba was acquired by Jack in the Box Inc., a publicly traded (NYSE: JBX) restaurant company headquartered in San Diego. Bajio Mexican Grill is also a fresh-Mex franchise chain that again offers more choices than Chipotle, but its franchising model puts a strain on store-to-store consistency.
Slide 26 The Sales Approach Chipotle will use a combination of the following media in creating its advertising and promotional campaign: –Yellow Pages –Newspaper –Direct Mail –Radio –Website

Slide 29 Two Things, Thousands of Ways We only serve a few things, so we can concentrate on doing them very well. And we use only the best ingredients. But they're simple. And that idea, taking something simple and elevating it to something special is what Chipotle is all about. It's all summed up in our name. A chipotle pepper is just a simple jalapeño pepper that's been smoked and dried elevating it from ordinary to something extraordinary. Tasting is believing.
Slide 30 The Inner Workings Chipotle will be open six days a week from the hours of 10:00am to 9:00pm. To operate the location we require 8 full-time employees and 7 part-time staffers all of which work on a rotating schedule which avoids overtime scheduling. Wages are about $8.00 to $9.00 per hour. It is imperative that we keep food costs below 28% of sales and labor costs just under 40%.
Slide 31 Location Design The design of Chipotle mirrors the idea behind our food: simple ingredients put together in creative, new ways, elevating them to a higher level. Each Chipotle uses the same basic materials wood, concrete, raw steel and metalsbut no two look the same.
