Chipotle recently announced that it will be giving away free burritos to apologize for inconveniencing customers with a series of restaurant closures on February 8th. After experiencing several food-poisoning outbreaks over the past several months, the popular fast casual chain is working hard to re-earn its customer's trust.

The new promotion is intended as an apology to customers for closing all Chipotle locations for a company-wide food safety meeting. To make up for disrupting the lunch plans of its customers, the company is giving away a limited number of free burritos. Those who wish to take advantage of the offer simply need to text the word "raincheck" to 888-222. This will bring up a link that will allow the customer to input the necessary information to receive their free burrito coupon.
