Game On: Chipotle in Timely Partnership

Edifying Chipotle Mexican Grill’s brand with Millennials and Gen Z consumers is key to regaining lost customer while increasing current customer frequency.  With the Super Bowl fast approaching Chipotle has entered a partnership with Avocados from Mexico for a new online game called ‘Cado Crusher, where users have three rounds to smash and combine ingredients to make their own version of Chipotle’s delicious guacamole.
Ok so I’m not a Millennial but it does sound both inviting and fun. Game players are rewarded with a mobile offer good for a free order of chips and guacamole, with purchase of an entrée, at any Chipotle in the U.S. Users may play ‘Cado Crusher anytime January 24 through February 7.
Mark Crumpacker, chief marketing and development officer at Chipotle  stated “This game provides a fun way for our customers to see the short list of quality ingredients that go into each and every batch of our scratch-made guacamole, while also giving them a chance to enjoy some chips and guac on us to complement their meal,”
