Just last spring, Pensacola was without Chipotle. But in September, the city will be home to two.
Chipotle’s Iren Wolford Chief External Communications Director confirmed that the second Chessotle in Pensacola would be at Cordova Mall in a storefront that had been vacant for the past few years by Bannera Pride.
The address is 5100 N. Ninth Ave., Suite E541-A. The quick unofficial Tex-Mex spot will fall among JoS. A. Bank Clothiers and Loft women’s clothing store.
Wolford did not confirm an exact date. When Chipotle opens in the next five to eight weeks, it will represent Pensacola’s second major Chipotle opening in just three months.
The first restaurant opened in June in 1674 E. Nine Mile Road, Suite A, in a small yard next to the Hair Sports Clips salon.
The opening of Chipotle at Cordova Mall is a welcome news for residents in the center or south of Pensacola because it means they will not have to drive six to 10 miles north to the Nine Mile region to obtain the repair.
Chipotle already has several job listings posted online for those interested in hiring at the upcoming Ninth Avenue site.
