Chipotle Mexican Grill will open its first midstate location in north Macon, the company told The Telegraph on Monday.
A spokeswoman for the Denver-based chain in recent weeks said the burrito and taco eatery was opening a restaurant here next spring but didn’t say where.
The Macon restaurant will be at 120 Tom Hill Sr. Blvd., sharing a shopping center with a neighboring Panda Express and Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
The location is just west of Interstate 75 and Riverside Drive, next door to a Chick-fil-A.
Chipotle has about 30 restaurants in Georgia, most in metro Atlanta.
