Chipotle-run Burger Concept Set to Launch This Fall

Chipotle-run Burger Concept Set to Launch This Fall

Tasty Made, the long-rumored burger chain by Chipotle, will open in Ohio this fall

The Mexican chain is branching out.

Chipotle has announced the launch of its first burger joint, Tasty Made, which will open in Lancaster, Ohio, this fall, ending months of speculation.

The Mexican fast-food icon hinted at expanding into the burger scene back in March when it filed a trademark application for the name “Better Burger.” Now, that speculation has become a reality —one that is hopefully is E. coli-free.

At the start, Tasty Made’s menu will be minimalist, offering only burgers, fries, and milkshakes. In making that decision, Chipotle CEO Steve Ells highlighted his inspiration: “Early fast food burger restaurants generally had focused menus. We think there’s great strength in that original fast food model and wanted to create a restaurant built around that.”

No word has come yet as to whether Tasty Made will incorporate some of Chipotle’s Mexican influences in its cuisine in the future (guacamole burger, anyone?), but for now, Tasty Made is keeping to the basics.

The debut of the burger chain comes as part of Chipotle’s fight to recover from the E. coli outbreak that ravished sales last fall. The chain returned to profitability last quarter, driven by the company’s new Chiptopia loyalty program.

Only time will tell if Chipotle’s entry into the burger market can compete with established icons Shake Shack, Five Guys, and Smashburger.

Now, Brock’s new era is coming into clearer focus. On Wednesday, the chef revealed that he had been tapped to helm the forthcoming signature restaurant at Grand Hyatt Nashville, which is set to open this fall inside of the massive Nashville Yards project.

“The energy in the air right now in Nashville is electric,” Brock tells Food & Wine. "This city is attracting so many creative and forward-thinking people who are moving here to chase their dreams. Nashville has always been that city for music and now it’s becoming that city for small and unique businesses. The sense of community is extraordinary and that breeds courage.”

Here’s everything we know about Brock’s highly anticipated (but as-yet-unnamed) downtown Nashville restaurant so far.
