Steve Ells

When Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO of Chipotle, opened the first Chipotle in Denver in 1993, he had a novel idea - to demonstrate that food served fast didn't have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, he and Chipotle are changing the way people think about and eat fast food. With a commitment to using ingredients from more sustainable sources - including naturally raised meat, organic and locally grown produce, as well as dairy products made with milk from cows that are not given synthetic hormones - Ells and Chipotle are leading a revolution to make great food affordable and accessible so everyone can eat better.
