...Financial Analysis: Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc When reviewing a company’s financials and trends within, it is important to seek the industry average therefore you have something to compare them to. Every industry’s averages are much different and can be interpreted from many angles.  For example: Chipotle Mexican Grill caries a trailing price to earnings ratio of 42x which is much higher than its competitors such as McDonalds, who carries a 17x p/e, or Yum Brands, who carries a 24x p/e ratio. From this data you can infer that chipotle is overpriced compared to competition, which also means the market likes the stock.  Then you must stand back and look at the data from an even different angle and notice that P/E ratios as a whole don’t matter as much during a time of such a bull market, they are just an indicator that the company will be a more risky investment when the market eventually pulls back. It is also important to understand that even though companies may be competitors they really may not be all that similar.  Yum’s Foods has 39,000 stores in 125 countries with broad exposure in china and India where middle income is higher and help them maintain growth as a rather mature company. Whereas Chipotle is mostly domesticated here in America where the spending gap is growing and the market is very saturated, which may cause concern for where the growth company will find its growth. That is where these companies differ; Chipotle is in a relatively new market called,......

And if that happens, they are more likely to come back."
-- Moran http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/08/31/5-things-chipotle-mexican-grills-management-wants.aspx organizational structure, CHIPOTLE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND CULTURE- DONIKA Starting the chain in 1993 in his hometown of Denver Colorado, Steve Ellis remains at the top of Chipotle’s organizational structure as Co-CEO and chairman of the company. Opening 13 separate restaurants in Colorado before partnering with McDonald’s in 2006, Ellis had no idea his taqueria inspired restaurant would be as successful and widespread as it is today. A large part of Chipotle’s success has come from the company’s culture. Best stated by Seeking Alpha, a leading investment company, Chipotle: prides itself on its natural wholesome ingredients, responsible farming, community stewardship, and a stimulating work place. This culture is passed on to customers, who are more likely to go out of their way to stop at Chipotle instead of a competitor because of the values they share with the company (Chipotle Mexican Grill: Why Corporate Culture Matters).

SWOT Analysis The Company’s Strategy Chipotle has been a very successful company since its inception with rapid growth as of recently. Financial data from the last fives years directly shows how well the company’s strategy is working. Net income for example has increased since 2007 to 2012.

Chipotle Marketing Plan

...Chipotle M Marketing Plan Marketing 5341 Professor Besio December 9th, 2014 The 5 Cs Company Chipotle is a Mexican food chain dedicated to serving high quality “fast” food. The company was founded by Steve Ells in Denver Colorado in 1993, and has grown to over 1,000 stores by 2011. The initial growth of Chipotle was mainly attributed to McDonald’s investment in the company in 1999 for a 90% stake. With the involvement of McDonald’s, Chipotle was able to gain access to not only capital, but to the parent companies’ suppliers through their large distribution system. By 2003, Chipotle had opened 300 stores throughout the country, and had established a loyal customer base. Today, Chipotle remains dedicated to its vision of “Food with Integrity.” This represents their “commitment to finding the very best ingredients with respect for the animals, the environment, and the farmers.” In addition to promoting its high quality, fresh ingredients, Chipotle offers consumers a customizable menu with an open kitchen atmosphere and assembly line food preparation. This allows customers to obtain high quality food quickly and efficiently. Customers Chipotle has done an impeccable job of building customer loyalty. The company has gained this following mainly by word of mouth, considering the company has a small advertising budget of only $4.5 million, less than 1% of its revenue, as of 2011. Considering this small advertising expenditure, it is impressive that the......

...San-Francisco, Steve Ells began to open the first Chipotle store in 1993 at a former Dolly Madison ice cream location near University of Denver campus. The first Chipotle was a wide success. After two years since the first Chipotle opened, Steve added the second and third Chipotle locations. In 1996, Chipotle Denver area restaurant opened. Following the extraordinary successes, Chipotle was able to invite more outside investors to expand the scale of production to give way for the Chipotle’s openings outside of Colorado: Minneapolis, MN, Columbus and OH. After Steve visited some individual local farms, he found out pigs were raised in air-opening area as opposed to the way majority of pigs were raised. So he decided to dg pork and chicken naturally. Chipotle went public on New York Exchange in 2006. After that, Chipotle still kept focusing on providing the most authentic and healthy ingredients within each burrito. His vision is to serve 100% naturally raised beef in the near future. Moreover, Steve promoted to eliminate the antibiotics in ranching. From the year Chipotle opened until now, it has always been emphasizing on pursuing high-quality ingredients and cooking techniques to provide best eating experience for customers and fulfilling corporate social responsibilities. Driven by its main vision “Food with Integrity” -which is to serve the food made with ingredients that serve the best for animals, environments and farmers, Chipotle is still following it and making......

Chipotle Marketing Plan

...Written Assignment –Chipotle Marketing Plan International Marketing-BUS 403 February 11, 2015 Introduction: | Chipotle first opened in Denver in 1993 with a simple idea behind it, “food served fast didn’t have to be “fast-food” experience”, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). Prior to CEO Steve Ellis opening the restaurant chain, he himself was a chef. Since its creation, Chipotle has become a phenomenon in the restaurant industry and has experienced tremendous growth since it went public in 2006 with over 1,600 restaurants in Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, and France, with the majority located in the United States (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). . The company focus is on using high-quality raw ingredients, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). Using fresh ingredients is the groundwork of the menu, but they also believe fresh is not enough any longer, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). Chipotle wants to know the sources for all of the ingredients in order to serve the freshest tasting food and to be mindful of the environmental and public impact of the business, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). Chipotle refers to this as “food with integrity”, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). Another thing that set’s Chipotle aside from the others in the industry is they practice classic cooking methods and the stores are of distinctive interiors that are found more in the world of fine-dining, not the typical fast-food, (Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2015). The Chipotle experience......

...When you think of Chipotle, you might just say oh it is just another fast food restaurant that offers Mexican food. Well that is not the case, there is so much more to this widely competitive company. Chipotle was founded in 1993 by Steve Ells who is a trained chef. Steve originally opened the first Chipotle restaurant with the intention of building a place where you could eat delicious food of the finest ingredients cheaply. In 2006 they became publicly traded and have steadily grown from his original in Denver, CO to 1600 worldwide. Much of the success is attributed to the expanding customer base of Chipotle. The success of Chipotle stems from upper management’s ability to expand the operations while maintaining the current experience and quality of food. Since the creation of this chain of restaurants profits have steadily increased from 12% to 24% annually. Chipotle as a company is now looking into new ventures such as the Southeast Asian inspired spinoff, Shop House. The company’s vision statement is “to change the way people think about and eat fast food” and its mission statement is to provide “Food with Integrity” (Chipotle, 2014). The vision statement has been successful in driving to its front door where it’s not unusual to see a line leading to the assembly kitchen within an hour of closing. The mission statement is short but the company constantly works to ensure the quality of the food is consistent and fresh and stocks from reliable......

Chipotle Case Sustainable Marketing

...Case Analysis 2 Chipotle Executive Summary In 1993, a new take on fast food emerged out of the Denver area. The restaurant had a vision of locally sourced food with a unique way of ordering that revolutionized the industry and actually pioneered the idea of fast casual dining (2). Chipotle Mexican Grill was founded by Steve Ells and has carried the mission statement, “Food with Integrity”, since the genesis of the chain (2). After its founding, Chipotle has seen wild success and now has 1,700 locations, even some overseas (2). The chain grossed over $327 million and employs 45,000 people (2). It is a true success story and it even considered the most sustainable restaurant chain. They only use naturally raised meat and organic ingredients that meet their guidelines. Chipotle has grown exponentially since their founding, and that is a part of the problem. Even though Chipotle has had massive success, they are starting to run into some trouble with their sustainable model. The chain has become so big, it is hard for them to essentially sustain sustainability. Their organic ingredients and naturally raised meat are at the root of the dilemma. They are expensive and it is hard to maintain the flow and volume of organics and naturally raised meat that Chipotle constantly craves (4). It seems as though they have become too big for sustainability and it is very worrisome. Chipotle might just be the test subject to see if substantial sustainability is possible on a...

...CMG (Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.) mission statement is “Food with Integrity”. “Food with Integrity” means not only high quality food with great taste, nutrition and value, but also careful ingredient sourcing with respect for the animals, the environment and the farmers. Later this mission statement was expanded to more environmentally friendly building materials and energy systems for CMG restaurants. Currently, the first objective for the firm is to sustain financial performance and competitiveness in light of future cuts in consumer spending and heightened competition, which threatens to take frequent customers away from Chipotle. At the same time, CMG annual report showed slowdown of the same-store sales, which in its turn put downward pressure on Chipotle stock price. Another threat is expected increase in food costs, and hence CMG plan to rise its menu price to make up for this. While trying to reach all other objectives the company aims to stay dedicated to sustainable and environmentally consciousness way of doing business. Chipotle’s target market is similar of its competitor “Cantina Bell” which consist of mostly males older than 24 years and less-value conscious than “Taco Bell” customers. Furthermore, GMC customers are environmentally consciousness, but valuing Chipotle convenience of getting their orders fast without experiencing “fast food” service.
