A hospitalized Chipotle customer wanted more burritos, as compensation. The 19-year-old women were one of the 96 customers who settled with the company after they got sick from E. coli, last year. Every victim had the chance to request money, as part of the settlement, but she had a surprising request. She said she will not have any problem with the restaurant if they will give her more burritos.
- A hospitalized Chipotle customer wanted more burritos, as compensation.
- She was one of the 96 customers who was infected with the E. coli bacteria.
Her decision was surprising even for her lawyer, Bill Marler. He said he had been doing those kinds of cases for 20 years and he never saw people who wanted to go back to the restaurant after they sued it. It seems that the woman is not the only one who loves Chipotle. According to tot the lawyer, more customers who were involved in the case went back to eat burritos. For some people, food is more important than any problem they had in the past.
Chipotle received the good news and they have the women an amount of money and three dozen free burrito coupons. It seems that everyone is happy now, even if there big issues in the past regarding E. coli, which was found in Chipotle burritos.
There was another customer who wanted burritos for his entire life from Chipotle. However, the boy was 17-year-old and her mother convinced him is not the right choice. We should not be surprised if those who were involved in the case will spend their money to buy burritos.
Although there are a lot of people who love Chipotle, the company has big issues due to the problems found there. In the last year, they lost many customers and its sales fell with 40 percent. There is still a criminal investigation regarding food-safety.
While the investors are accused, customers seem to enjoy burritos. There are not many people who want food as compensation after they sued a restaurant. We are expecting more people to follow her example if they really enjoy that food. Chipotle could gain more customers due to this decision. What do you think? Will you choose food as compensation?
