LaVale, Md. — Chipotle Mexican Grill is now hiring managers for its LaVale restaurant that is expected to open this year.
The restaurant is now advertising openings for a general manager and an assistant manager. Both positions come with medical, dental, 401(k) benefits and semi-annual bonuses, according to the postings. Chipotle will be housed in a renovated space in the Braddock Road Shopping Center, 12101 Winchester Road, that was once home to a U.S. Cellular, among other businesses through the years. This will be Chipotle’s first location in Allegany County.
Once a restaurant advertises openings for management, it will take some time to get them settled in to start hiring cooks and the rest of their staff. Typically when the general manager post is advertised, opening is about 180 days away. That’s what we’re looking at now, at best. Construction and opening seems to be slower than usual.
Chipotle said to check back in early summer for a better idea of when opening could be.
It looks like we still have a bit before our opening. Check back early summer and we’ll probably have a better answer for you!
