Chipotle raises menu prices to offset higher wages
PORTLAND, OR (KATU) – As restaurants prepare for a busy summer, many are finding it difficult to keep staff.
So, Chipotle is raising its menu prices to cover the cost of higher wages.
The fast-food chain announced in May that it would increase worker pay to an average of $15 an hour.
Chipotle is also offering a $200 employee referral bonus.
The company’s price hikes come as global food prices are on the rise.
