When’s the Twin Falls Chipotle Going to Open?
We heard a rumor that construction had stalled at the new Chipotle in Twin, so we did some checking to find out.

Keep in mind that we live in a world where we get upset if shipping takes more than two days and we pace in front of the microwave, waiting for popcorn. We are an impatient bunch of folks.
When we heard rumor from one anxious listener that the Chipotle construction had stalled, we visited the site on Blue Lakes in Twin to check out the status. When we arrived, we found an electrician, a handful of construction workers and a crane in the parking lot. It was obvious that work was being done.
We also reached out to Chipotle and asked for a ballpark opening date and received this response from their press contact.

Mid year could mean anything from around May to sometime over the summer so it's too early to commit. It might be possible that the crazy weather could have slowed things down a little, but we couldn't find any indication of a stalled project.
