Don’t Freak Out, But Chipotle Is Almost Out of Meat

Fortunately, the guac shortage appears to be over.

If you love Chipotle’s carne asada, you may want to run out and get a burrito as soon as possible because according to the Mexican food chain, there probably won’t be any left by the time Thanksgiving rolls around.

During a quarterly earnings call earlier this week, John Hartung, the company’s chief financial officer, said that the limited-time steak option is going to run out in the next 4-6 weeks.

“We only have enough supply for carne asada to last us for part of the quarter” explained Hartung. “We think we’ll probably run out around the end of November, maybe into early December.”

This shouldn’t come as too much of a shock for Chipotle lovers, as the carne asada was always expected to be a seasonal item. Still, if you’re hoping to get one last taste of Chipotle’s carne asada, you should probably do that sooner rather than later.
On the bright side, 2020 is looking like it will be a strong year for Chipotle’s avocado-offering. Over the summer, customers began to complain about Chipotle’s guacamole tasting subpar due to avocados being in high demand while also having limited availability, with some suppliers even experiencing shortages. Fortunately, Hartung said that they are expecting a more plentiful harvest for next year, meaning that you will continue to get to pay extra for your beloved guac with the knowledge that it will be quality.

“We expect ongoing moderation in avocado pricing as a result of increasing supply in the back half of the quarter,” Hartung said.
