Chipotle giving away free guacamole for National Avocado Day Chipotle sales surge despite rising prices, pandemic closures
Chipotle CFO Jack Hartung discusses the restaurant chain’s 38.7% surge in sales amid inflation concerns and pandemic recovery efforts.
This weekend, the guacamole is on Chipotle.
The fast casual chain announced Wednesday that it will be giving away free guac on Saturday, which is also National Avocado Day.
Customers in the U.S. and Canada can get either a free topping or a free side of guacamole on July 31, but only on digital orders, made through the Chipotle app or website, according to the announcement.
