Chipotle sales down 26% in February
Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc says sales trends are showing improvement but were still down 26 percent for February as it tries to recover from a series of food scares. The drop in sales at established locations for February follows a 36 percent decline for January. The February results were boosted by an extra day in the month this year, the Denver company said. Chipotle is trying to bounce back after an E. coli outbreak and other incidents sent sales plummeting starting at the end of October.
