Chipotle Will Honor Nurses With A Deal Just For Them On June 5

What a great way to thank nurses across the country!

Although National Nurses Week already took place this year in May, Chipotle is honoring nurses a month later, with a buy-one-get-one-free deal on Tuesday, June 5.

While of course you must be a nurse to get the deal, Chipotle says it includes all nurses: RN, NP, CRNA, CNS, CNM, LVN, CNA and local equivalents or analogues.

All you have to do is present valid identification, like a nursing license or hospital or medical office nursing ID.

The buy-one-get-one-free offer is good for a burrito, burrito bowl, salad or an order of tacos.

Just choose whichever one you’d like and the second one is free, with a limit of one free entree per eligible nurse.

The offer is valid for in-store orders only, so you cannot order online or via the app.

“Nurses are some of the most selfless people and make such significant contributions to our society day in and day out,” Laurie Schalow, chief communications officer at Chipotle, said in a statement. “Every year, we want to make sure we do a little something to make them feel appreciated and ensure all that they do doesn’t go unnoticed.”

Chipotle did indeed have the same deal last year and even had one for teachers just last month.

Nurses, will you take advantage of this offer by having Chipotle for lunch or dinner on June 5?

Woman Gives Birth At Chipotle

Adrianna Alvarez was en route to the hospital earlier this year when she realized she wouldn’t make it there in time — she was in labor and the baby was ready! The baby’s father, Saul Flores, called 911, and the dispatcher advised them to pull over. They ended up in a Chipotle parking lot in Aurora, Colorado, and with the help of firefighters, that’s where their baby boy, Jaden, was born.

A month later, the happy family was invited back to the scene of the birth, where the restaurant chain treated them to a baby shower.

Of course, burritos were the theme of this special shower, including a burrito cake topper and cupcakes with tiny edible burrito decorations!

Also present at the shower was Angie Schell, the 911 dispatcher who coached Alvarez and Flores through their unusual delivery.

The 911 dispatcher was delighted to see a happy ending to this story.

“We don’t hardly ever get to meet our patients, ever,” Schell told KDVR. “We don’t even know what happens to them after we’re done sometimes. So to be able to share the good news and this is what dispatchers do out there. We do this every day. You see a lot of bad news out there, but gosh, there are so many good ones out there.”

Here she is cradling Jaden in a super-cute on-theme gift from Chipotle — a tortilla swaddling blanket:

While it was a coincidence that Chipotle ended up being the birthplace of their son, Flores and Alvarez actually met at a Chipotle. Plus, each worked at the fast food chain at one time as well! So the burrito chain really holds a special place in their hearts.

“We are always looking to make our customers happy by going above and beyond and cultivating a sense of community,” Quinn Kelsey, Chipotle public relations and communications manager, said in a statement to Food & Wine. “When we heard that baby Jaden was born in our parking lot, and the amazing teamwork between the family and the dispatcher, we were excited to do something special to celebrate them all. We loved throwing the Chipotle-themed baby shower and hope they enjoyed it just as much as we did.”
