Chipotle Mexican Grill is offering a new food delivery service through a new partnership with Postmates. This delivery service will be provided in 67 major cities in the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.

Delivery Cost can vary from $4.99 to 7.99 per order, but that all depends on the distance.

Chipotle chose to sign with Postmates because Chief marketer and development officer Mark Crumpacker saw that ever since they began to deliver Chipotle there has been a 30% month-over-month growth.

Chipotle is also planning to partner up with Apple, hoping to set up a mobile payment option within its ordering apps. They are also looking into partnering with Apple Pay and Google Wallet mobile payment services.

“When they told me Chipotle was going to start delivering I thought they were messing with me”, said Senior Natalia Garcia ”I’m so excited to have it be delivered to my front door”
