Todd Wenning of Ensemble Capital presented his investment thesis on Chipotle Mexican Grill (US: CMG) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2021.

It is benefiting from nascent national scale benefits, a loyal and growing fan base, a leading digital-first strategy, and an emphasis on creating stakeholder value.
Executing fresh food preparation at a national and global level is not easy to do – Chipotle learned this lesson the hard way – and no one is even close to catching Chipotle on this front. As global food preferences turn towards healthier options, Chipotle is becoming a dominant QSR brand.
