NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) is now offering customers the option to purchase a large-sized guacamole side, just in time for National Guacamole Day on September 16.

Many of our customers can't get enough of our guac, and we're thrilled to give people even more options to get their guac fix."
