Vista Chipotle opening delayed | Community Spirit
The opening for the Vista's newest restaurant is going to happen a week later than originally scheduled.
Chipotle Mexican Grill, located at 619 Gervais Street, is slated to celebrate its grand opening on Tuesday, June 18 at 10:30 a.m.
Mayor Steve Benjamin will join Congaree Vista Guild Executive Director Sarah Lewis to welcome Chipotle to the neighborhood and Columbia. The two will offer comments on a projected $150 million worth of investments in the Vista in 2013, of which Chipotle is a part.
The ribbon-cutting was scheduled for June 11. Officials said DHEC delayed the opening because of issues with the floor in the kitchen.
The restaurant is a model of adaptive reuse, like several other buildings in the Vista.
Tours of the new restaurant will be available following the ribbon cutting.
Chipotle will officially open for business that day at 11 a.m.
