Want a free Chipotle Burrito?  Well you now have your chance to get one courtesy of NBC.


NBC just recently launched a promotion offering free Chipotle food for anyone who watches a 90-second promo on Facebook for the upcoming show America’s Next Great Restaurant.

There’s an app on the show’s Facebook Page where, in exchange for watching the promo, visitors get a buy-one, get-one-free coupon at Chipotle. The chain’s founder and CEO, Steve Ells, is one of four investors in the show.

Customers who print out the coupon can get a free Chipotle meal, including a burrito, tacos or a bowl with the purchase of another meal.

This promotion ends March 6.

There’s also another in-store promotion, where anyone who texts “ANGR” (America’s Next Great Restaurant) at any Chipotle location will have a chance to win a catered burrito party.

This is the first time the network has used food to get consumers to watch a show promo and I’m pretty sure that this promotion will definitely work and at least inform people of the show, which I admittedly didn’t know about until I heard the word “free” and “burrito” in the same sentence.

America’s Next Great Restaurant, which premieres March 6, pits 21 contestants against each other as a panel of judges decide whose restaurant concept is the best. The winner gets to launch his or her own restaurant chain.

Domino’s and Ford to Test Self-Driving Pizza Delivery Cars

Domino's futuristic car

Ford and Domino’s Pizza are teaming up to test self-driving pizza delivery cars in Michigan, as part of an effort to better understand how customers respond to and interact with autonomous vehicles.


They began testing Tuesday in Ann Arbor, where Domino’s is based, to see whether customers like the idea of driverless-car delivery or stumble over what amounts to a self-serve pickup process once the pizza arrives.

The test involves using a Ford Fusion sedan with markings and gear on the roof to indicate it is self-driving.

Ford said the Fusion hybrid is capable of driving itself but is driven by an engineer for the purposes of the testing. The windows will be tinted to prevent the customer from seeing the driver. The main intent of the project is to test customer reaction and the customers will think the vehicle is driving itself.

Those who participate in the test can track their order through a Domino’s app and will receive a unique code that matches the last four digits of their phone number to be used to unlock the so-called Heatwave Compartment which is a container that keeps pizzas warm in the back of the car. Information will be communicated through screens and speakers on the exterior of the cars.

“We’re interested to learn what people think about this type of delivery,” Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA, said in a statement. “The majority of our questions are about the last 50 feet of the delivery experience.”

Areas of focus include how willing are people to come outside to pick up their orders, the way they approach the car, and how they interact with the screen outside of the vehicle to get the food.

Marakby said this is the first of multiple partnerships between Ford and other companies as part of efforts to ramp up autonomous vehicle testing.

Subway has seen their fair share of bad press in the past few years, with the Jared Fogle situation casting a bad light over their business. A new video that has surfaced to add on to the company’s troubles, as security footage caught one customer pulling a gun on another Subway customer for no reason at all.


Security footage captured this frightening interaction between two Subway customers over the weekend. A man with a woman and child were ordering at the counter when another man wearing a hood got in line behind them. The first man promptly pulled a gun on the second and then harassed him for another couple of minutes.

Though this does seem like it could be a scene straight out of the USA, the Subway where the altercation occurred is in Brazil.

Hooters is shutting down a few of its locations and it’s all because millennials aren’t that into boobs.


According to a study done by Pornhub, “Pornhub visitors between the ages of 18 to 24 are 19% less likely to search for breasts when compared to all other age groups, but visitors aged 55 to 64 are 17% more likely to search.”

Because of the loss of interest, breast centric restaurants like Hooters and Twin Peaks are losing business.

According to Business Insider, the number of Hooters locations in the U.S has dropped by more than 7% from 2012 to 2016 and sales have stagnated.

Hooters has been trying to win over millennials for years; in 2012, the chain spiced up its image with a new decor and updated menu items, in an attempt to attract younger patrons and female customers.

They even pivoted and opened up a fast-casual location called Hoots, which features fully-clothed female and male waiters.
