Casper will be getting a new restaurant chain soon.

Chipotle Mexican Grill will be opening later this year according to City Planner Craig Collins. As we prepare this, sight plans are nearing completion.

The 2,700 square foot facility will be located on Second Street, in the southeast corner of the Home Depot parking lot.

A spokesman for Chipotle says the restaurant should be open by the fourth quarter of this year, and more information is forthcoming as that date nears.

This will certainly create more competition for the likes of Qdoba and other local eateries serving casual Mexican cuisine.
