People Think Chipotle Might Be Coming To Ottawa And They Are Way Too Excited

Let Ottawa have this, k?

Posted on

Canada's capital city may be beautifully historic, but it's also often the last major city in Canada to get shiny new things. So news that a Chipotle could be coming to Ottawa is being welcomed with open, burrito-ready arms.

The speculation is all stemming from a job opening for a Chipotle general manager position posted on Indeed.com three days ago.

BuzzFeed Canada was unable to find the job listed on Chipotle's website, or other job listing sites. When asked, Chipotle gave a cryptic answer.

"We don't discuss plans for individual locations of markets beyond what we have under lease and where construction is scheduled," said spokesperson

Chris Arnold in an email.

"At this time, we do not have anything there that meets those criteria."

Curious.

And while that's far from a concrete confirmation, Ottawans have noticed the Indeed posting and are getting their hopes up all the same.

And who wouldn't welcome something that challenges Ottawa's reputation for lacking nice things.

Not only did Ottawa make great progress with Uber they're also getting Chipotle. Hell yeah Ottawa 👊🏽

Seriously, this is exciting for people, especially considering that the closest Chipotle to Ottawa is in New York state.

@JordanTeeth just MADE MY WHOLE DAY. OTTAWA WILL BE BLESSED WITH CHIPOTLE.

BLESSED!

There's also already speculation about where this hypothetical Chipotle will exist.

chipotle coming to ottawa, can't wait to find out whether it's going to be in Barrhaven or right next to Barrhaven

Barrhaven, also known as Farhaven, is a suburban area known for chains and big-box stores.

Only time will tell if Ottawa will get to enter the 21st century and feast upon mediocre burritos like the rest of us.
