Big news in burrito land: Chipotle is opening a new location in Land Park and holding a fundraiser for a local youth fitness initiative this week.
The gourmet burrito restaurant is opening its 23rd Sacramento location on Friday, this time at the corner of Sutterville Road and Freeport Boulevard, across from the eastern edge of William Land Park, Chipotle officials announced in a news release.
If you want a sneak peak before the grand opening, head over to the new Chipotle between 6 and 9 p.m. Thursday, when the chain will host a fundraiser for Fleet Feet Sacramento's Project Fit, a non-profit program that supplies after-school fitness kits and curriculum to local elementary schools.
One hundred percent of the fundraiser's proceeds will be donated to the program, the release states.
But wait, there's more.
On Friday, the first 100 customers at the new location will get free T-shirts. The restaurant also is hosting a giveaway. The prize? Free burritos for a year.
The new location will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
