Chipotle today announced that its new "Chipotlane Digital Kitchen," a prototype designed for digital order pickups from a walk-up counter or drive-thru that features a patio but no indoor dining, will open in Cuyahoga Falls at 994 Graham Road this month.

"Chipotlanes are a key growth strategy for the brand," Tabassum Zalotrawala, Chief Development Officer, said in a press release. "Our portfolio of approximately 300 Chipotlanes perform with the highest margins across the board, so we continue to evolve our restaurant design with formats such as the Chipotlane Digital Kitchen to best suit our growing digital business."

The burrito chain has 6,000 North American locations and has 12 that currently offer digital order pickup lanes.
