Chipotle Exec: Tariffs May Cause Modest Price Hikes

A nickle on a burrito?……

Say it ain’t so!

The CEO of Chipotle was compensated $33.5 Million in 2018 and Trump’s tariffs are a problem?

Hmmmmmm…..I wonder what the CEO’s pay package costs are per burrito?

Looming tariffs on Mexican goods could mean higher prices for food at Chipotle (CMG).

If Trump’s threatened tariffs on Mexican goods go into effect, it would cost the company $15 million this year and reduce margins by 20 to 30 basis points, the company reported.

“If the tariffs become permanent, we would look to offset these costs through other margin improvement efforts already underway…………We could also consider passing on these costs through a modest price increase, such as about a nickel on a burrito, which would cover the increased cost without impacting our strong value proposition.”
