Chipotle inappropriately handled this crisis because CEO Steve Ells and Co-CEO Monty Moran blamed the Center for Disease Control and the media for exaggerating the outbreak. Creating a public perception of Chipotle’s board members who did not showcase a clear motive for public health safety. After the E. coli outbreak, Moran made statements to Chipotle’s investors at an industry conference: “The media likes to write sensational headlines, you’ll probably see, you know, when somebody sneezes, Ah, it’s E. coli from Chipotle” (Colvin, 2015).

Customers are often forced to choose one another as many restaurants lack the flexibility for customers to enjoy both of these demands. One restaurant that’s goal has been to meet both of these crucial customer demands is Chipotle. Chipotle is a Mexican-food based restaurant that strives to offer a fast-service experience for its customers along with high quality and healthy ingredients. For the last twenty years, Chipotle is one of the fastest and biggest growing restaurants in the United States. Chipotle’s stock has been public as of 2006 (Market Watch 1). As of last year, Chipotle currently has 2,250 restaurants in the US (Market Watch 1).

While it is easy to see why Chipotle has fallen off with customers due to the E Coli breakout, it is also easy to see why Chipotle has succeeded and become a fixture of success in the food industry. This paper will provide an objective focus on the internal structures that have turned Chipotle into one of the most successful restaurants in the US by looking at Chipotle’s plans and marketing strategy, organization and leadership.
