Chipotle Is Latest Company to Add Tuition Benefits

June 8, 2015

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. has become the latest company with national operations to expand tuition benefits to all employees. Nation's Restaurant News reported that the company will be expanding a full tuition reimbursement benefit that has been limited to salaried employees. As of July 1, it will be available to hourly employees as well. JD Cummings, recruitment strategy manager, said that the tuition benefit would likely appeal to high school and college students, “which is a lot of our target demographic for entry-level positions in the restaurant.”

The move by Chipotle follows a number of national companies -- including Starbucks and McDonald's -- adding or expanding tuition benefits.
