Likewise, the forthcoming Mesa location is part of a national push to open 255-285 restaurants in 2023, 80 percent of which will highlight the Chipotlane feature.

In 2019, the chain store that touts healthy and fresh food on an affordable budget needed to innovate to survive in an environment largely moving toward mobile orders and the convenience of drive-through pick-up lanes.

It stands to reason that their new remodeling would include such a Chipotlane, as seen in the permit plans they recently filed; the chain restaurant had not returned What Now Phoenix‘s request for comment at the time of publication.

Customers are warned that they cannot place an order at these windows; they can only pick up their food after ordering online. 

The new Chipotle and potential Chipotlane will join a corner that already houses Burger King and Black Rock Coffee, and is across the street from Eastmark High School. Residents and visitors can enjoy some Chipotle standards like their create-your-own-combination bowl; these are available with keto, vegan, Whole30, or ready to be made with any variety of fresh ingredients. Whether in a bowl, salad, burrito, or taco form, the menu at Chipotle is a standard when you have to satisfy several different dietary needs.

Until this Mesa location is finished, the only other Chipotlane in Arizona is almost 90 minutes away, at 108 S beeline Highway in Payson. According to their website, there are 19 other Chipotle locations in Phoenix with the standard dine-in options.
