NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) today announced that it is accepting submissions for its coveted Celebrity Card on social media.

Over the past two decades, Chipotle's Celebrity Card has been presented to notable figures who have publicly expressed their passion for Chipotle, but now the brand is accepting submissions from all superfans to participate.

How to Get a Celebrity Card

  1. Through July 3, Chipotle fans can share a piece of content to persuade Chipotle why they should become a Celebrity Card holder via TikTok, Instagram and X and tag #CelebCardContest. Chipotle wants fans to get creative --the content can be anything from a video to a photo, a poem, an original song, artwork, or other creative content. At the end of the contest, up to five submissions will be selected by Chipotle.
  2. On July 12, Chipotle will contact the winners via email to coordinate their Celebrity Card delivery.
  3. Celebrity Card holders have access to one free Chipotle meal per day including chips, a side and drink for one year, plus one catering order for up to 50 people during the year*

"There's always been a special mystique around the Chipotle Celebrity Card. Given that the word 'celebrity' comes from 'celebrate,' we realized there is no group more deserving of a celebration than our everyday superfans," said Chris Brandt, Chief Brand Officer at Chipotle. "We are expanding on what it means to be a Chipotle celebrity and relaunching the program to deepen our connections with our most devoted guests."

The Allure of the Chipotle Celebrity Card
In 2003, a musician turned television star raved about Chipotle on his family's reality television show, prompting Chipotle to issue its first-ever Celebrity Card. Since then, Chipotle has been known to surprise and delight notable superfans who organically share their love of the brand with Celebrity Cards. While the terms of the program have long been a mystery, Chipotle has received thousands of requests for cards from guests on social (see HERE, HERE, HERE). As a brand that practices radical transparency with its real ingredients, Chipotle is peeling back the foil on its Celebrity Card program and giving fans an unprecedented opportunity to join the exclusive roster and get access to free Chipotle.
