Chipotle could add new spice to Titusville restaurant scene

A much anticipated Chipotle Mexican Grill being built at the Titus Landing Mall in Titusville will add another dining choice for locals and visitors.


One can almost taste the salsa and spices Titusville will soon enjoy at a restaurant rising at the corner of U.S.1 and Harrison Street at Titus Landing shopping mall.

The new building will house a 2,400-square-foot Chipotle Mexican Grill attached to a 3,750-square-foot retail building.

A tentative turnover is set for the end of December, with the goal of opening around the New Year.

It will be the third Brevard County Chipotle, with other locations in Melbourne and Viera.

Chipotle is known for its made-to-order burritos, tacos and bowls, prepared as customers watch. The restaurant also serves salads, carnitas, vegetarian dishes, an assortment of sides, salsas and a children’s menu.

“The community is rallying around having a Chipotle. We get a lot of calls asking for an update,” said Marcia Gaedcke, the president of the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We are always glad to open a new business. It’s a positive thing.”

We will likely see Gaedcke at the Chipotle.

“I’m pleased it will be conveniently located to the Chamber,” she said.

Titusville City Council member Joe Robinson applauded the additional choice Chipotle will add to hometown dining options.

“It will help keep people local, financially and otherwise,” he said.

Robinson encouraged the public to check out all Titusville’s restaurants, including others at Titus Landing, in Downtown Titusville, the I-95 corridor and everything in between.
