Burrito lovers let down after pranksters tweet about fake Chipotle


Burrito lovers in Grand Forks were sorely disappointed after a Twitter account that claimed to represent a future area Chipotle turned out to be a hoax.

The Grand Forks Herald reports the handle @ChipotleGF popped up last Friday and tweeted that the Mexican grill was coming to Grand Forks in 2014 or 2015.

A Chipotle spokesperson told the newspaper that the account that accrued 170 followers isn't affiliated with they company and said they wouldn't announce plans for a new store this far in advance.

The account is no longer active, but excited residents had plenty to say about the possibility. Maybe the company will take note.
