Chipotle To Begin Delivery At Penn State This Fall

The day you have been eagerly awaiting has finally arrived. Chipotle is going to begin delivery at Penn State.

I’m not sure if you read that right, so, here, read it one more time:

The Mexican food joint to which students flock after lengthy study sessions and before crazy daylongs will, in the near future, bring its heavily-stuffed burritos, hearty bowls, and creamy (albeit extra) guac right to your door.

According to USA Today, Chipotle will be partnering with Tapingo, a food-delivery app targeted at college communities, to begin delivery to 40 colleges this fall with a plan to expand to 100 colleges come spring. The service is already available at six schools, and will be coming to State College, reportedly, this fall. According to Tapingo, the delivery fee will fall somewhere between $1.99 and $4.99.

After a short period of uncertainty last fall, Chipotle appears to be back with a vengeance (dare we cite a cameo in the Line Dance?). Even better, you won’t have to leave your room (or go to Primanti Bros.) to get the tortilla and bean nourishment college students obviously need.
