William Espey, a member of Chipotle’s Marketing division, says that the company strives to keep “turnover at a minimum.” He notes that that to keep entry-level workers incentivized you have to “promise them a future.” Espey adds, “Our platform is built around opportunity. We open a new restaurant every two days. Last year, we promoted 10,000 employees at the restaurant level into management positions.” Chipotle says that about 95 percent of the chain’s managers are employees that were promoted from within the company.

That means you can apply for some of the best acting schools in the country including Savannah College of Art and Design, NYU: Tisch School of the Arts, and University of Southern California Film School and eat an amazing chipotle burritos.
