Site preparation has started for a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Statesboro. The restaurant is being built on Brampton Avenue in the Market District. It will be located beside the Hampton Inn and adjacent to the Walmart Market.

According to Justin Williams, City Planner II for the City of Statesboro there has been a land disturbance permit pulled for the Chipotle while the site plan is being reviewed for final architecture approval.

The city has already approved the site plan, however there have been some requested changes by the Market District. These changes will ensure that the building meets the standards required by the Market District. Horizon Construction out of Alpharetta is the GC for this job.

Construction cannot begin until the site plan has been resubmitted and again approved with the Market District requested changes.

Once this is worked out, construction should begin pretty quickly. Tyler Benson, Analyst, External Communications Chipotle Mexican Grill said they are currently scheduled to open a location in Statesboro at some point in the fall.

Statesboro’s Will be New Chiptolane Concept Restaurant

Benson said the Statesboro location will feature a Chipotlane, the brands digital order drive thru pick up lane. Chipotlanes are digital-only drive-thru lanes currently operating at 20 locations. Customers will place their order on the Chipotle app and then head to the drive through the pick up the order.
