Fort Hood is About to Get Its Burrito On
A recent press release revealed that Fort Hood in Killeen will be getting a Chipotle Mexican Grill sometime this summer as construction for the site is set to begin late March.
If you haven't heard, Chipotle offers massive burritos, tacos and salads that "use only fresh, high-quality ingredients," according to the release. The brand will utilize the last remaining vacant space in the post exchange, Clear Creek Shopping Center.
Paula Gunderson, the general manager of the Ft. Hood Exchange told the Killeen Daily Herald:
We want soldiers and their families to have similar options on-post as they would anywhere else. The addition of Chipotle brings us even closer to realizing our vision of the Clear Creek Exchange as a top-tier shopping and dining hub that can compete with the best of what the outside has to offer.
Nearby Chipotle restaurants include locations in Copperas Cove, Harker Heights and Temple.
