A Chipotle location currently under construction will open in Pullman in March 2021. 

The restaurant will be located on the corner of Brelsford Drive, across from Starbucks and adjacent to Walmart, said Kerri Staniszewski, director of operations at Corporate Pointe Developers.

There are several benefits a business like Chipotle will bring to the community, said Marie Dymkoski, executive director of the Pullman Chamber of Commerce.

“Pullman is a tourist environment in the way that we bring in a lot of people who visit WSU,” she said. “And of course the students, staff and faculty who are always looking for variety.”

Dymkoski said businesses like Chipotle research aspects of a city, like population and median income, before making the final decision to open a new location.

Chipotle reached out to Corporate Pointe Developers so the company could find a location for the new business, Staniszewski said.

Once construction is finished, Chipotle will host a grand opening, Staniszewski said.
