Chipotle Under Fire For Stealing From Customers In Nationwide Receipt Rounding Scandal

Chipotle Under Fire For Stealing From Customers In Nationwide Receipt Rounding Scandal

Chipotle customers are outraged as it has been discovered that the burrito conglomerate has been rounding up total prices to the nearest nickel in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts area eateries.

Chipotle defended itself saying that rounding the price up or down speeds up the process of customers getting their food, as lines can reach well into double digits many times during the day.

Jayson Greenberg noticed something fishy with his bills, and decided to do some research.

“The receipts at the Chipotle in West Caldwell don’t add up when there are odd amounts involved,” he told the Star-Ledger.

On July 13, he purchased $32.93 worth of food, with $2.31 worth of tax, but it mysteriously added up to $35.25, rather than $35.24.

Another receipt showed a subtotal of $8.64 with a tax of $0.60, but the total was $9.25 rather than $9.24.

He said it was the principle, not the pennies, that bothered him.

While it may seem miniscule, the pennies add up. Millions of people frequent Chipotle everyday. You’d think with all of these unjustified profits, they wouldn’t have to charge $2.50 for their luscious guacamole.
