Start saving for that extra guacamole!

Elmont residents were pleased to discover last week that popular fast casual restaurant, Chipotle Mexican Grill, will soon be opening a new location in the Elmont neighborhood. 

The famous Mexican Grill establishment will be located at 620 Hempstead Turnpike, the site of a now-closed Capital One Bank. It will join Applebee’s, Home Depot, Marshall’s, and Target/Starbucks inside of the Plainview Shopping Center.

Chipotle Mexican Grill was founded in 1993 by Steve Ells in Denver, Colorado. Since then, the restaurant has grown to become a multi-million dollar business with over 2,000 locations across the world.

A few Elmont residents took to Twitter recently and shared their reactions to the news:

Editor’s Note: Tune in next time for a brand new episode of “Why can’t we have nice things, too?” starring the Elmont community.
