Our food culture has always set us apart from other fast food restaurants by using great quality ingredients and preparing food using classic cooking techniques in open kitchens on display for all to see. People appreciate these things and we’ll continue to stay focused on them,” said Steve Ells, Founder, Chairman and Co-CEO of Chipotle.

Results for the fourth quarter 2012

Revenue for the quarter was $699.2 million, up 17.2% from the prior year period. The growth in revenue was the result of new restaurants not in the comparable base and a 3.8% increase in comparable restaurant sales.
