National restaurant chain Chipotle, founded in Denver in 1993, has its eye on Towne Center at Batavia for a new location according to a special use permit application filed on its behalf by COR Development Company, owners of the plaza.
The building is the former location Metro Mattress in the same structure as Game Stop and Five Guys.
If approved, the location would be modified to include a drive-thru and outdoor seating.
Chipotle, with more than 2,000 locations nationwide, specializes in Mexican-style cuisine and especially known for its build-your-own burrito bar.
The application for a special use permit and site plan review will be heard this month by the County Planning Board before being sent to the Town of Batavia Planning Board.
Neither COR nor Chipotle, at least so far, have filed an application with Genesee County Economic Development Center for any tax abatements.
