Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) shares dipped slightly on Monday after the burrito chain announced that it would be undertaking a huge expansion to its workforce. Chipotle currently employs roughly 94,000 people, and it is looking to add even more on top of this.


Specifically, the firm announced its first national hiring event of the year called "Coast to Coast Career Day" on Thursday, January 14. The goal of this event is to employ 15,000 new team members for Chipotle’s restaurants across the United States to keep up with its expansion.


Note that Chipotle has plans to open up roughly 200 new restaurant locations, although the timeline is a little fuzzy.
