Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (Chipotle) operates Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants with over 2,000 restaurants. Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants serve a menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads.

The company has recently been dealing with a series of E. Coli outbreaks in Seatle, Kansas, Oklahoma, California and Massachusetts.

More than 500 people are estimated to have become ill after eating in Chipotle restaurants in the second half of 2015.

The Chipotle restaurant in Basking Ridge opened in the middle of last year.

Chipotle will close all of its 2,000 stores on Feb. 8 to hold company-wide meeting on food safety, CEO Steve Ells announced this week. The popular Mexican food chain will implement a revised food safety plan after the company's top executives met with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the health scare.

The quick service restaurant chain's stock price, which peaked at 757.77 on August 5, 2015, has plummeted in recent months following the E. coli outbreaks in nine states during October and November, and the outbreak of norovirus at a Massachusetts location more recently.
