As you probably know "the Donald" was in Phoenix recently bloviating about Mexican illegal aliens but even more about himself - "I went to the Wharton School of Business. I'm, like a really smart person" - (Yes, he really did say that.) So I thought today would be a good day to update you on the progress of Hillary Clinton's favorite Mexican fast food restaurant here in Prescott Valley.

The signs are up, the exterior painting job is done and the town's Economic Development Manager Greg Fister tells me opening day is sometime in August. He also said about three quarters of that building is still for lease. Chipotle will only occupy the front quarter of the site.

(Actually I don't know that this is Hillary's favorite but she did stop at one in Maumee, Ohio, when she was making her drive from New York to Iowa in the early stages of her presidential campaign.)

Sorry about the quality of the photo. It came from the restaurant's security camera.


  1. Thanks for the update and news.


  2. As an aside we love a pepper sauce spiked up with Chipotle peppers. I became acquainted with Chipotle pepper spread when on assignment up in the mountains in Xalapa. Next to the butter dish was a small dish of a brown gravy looking material. Wow! I was hooked. Never eaten in a Chipotles--but we have some good mom and pop restaurants in the area.

  3. I do love good Mexican food, but Chipolte's....not so sure. I wish I lived in a place where it was available.
    Weirdly, I rented a townhouse in Maumee for nearly a year when doing a gig for Pfizer in Toledo, flying home on Friday. And there was a really good Lebanese take out place nearby.

  4. I've never been to one of these restaurants but our favorite Mexican restaurant recently closed so maybe I give a Chipotle a chance. Maybe I'll bump into Hillary.

  5. I'm not a big Chipolte fan. To me it is to Mexican food like McDonald's is to a good also-ran. But if that's all you have, you make do. :)

  6. Another easy enough effort would be to include customers on a birthday email list where they can receive a coupon on their birthday for a discount or free dessert. phoenix Mexican restaurant
