As a business promotion and to introduce itself to the community Chipotle is going to give away FREE FOOD on June 17th. The particulars on the FREE FOOD are an entree, chips, and a drink for everyone that stops by on June 17th from 11 am to 7 pm.
Chipotle’s FREE FOOD promotion sounds like a great way to introduce its products to the people. But wait didn’t another company have a similar promotion recently that back fired?
Yes. That’s right. Just last month to introduce its new grilled chicken KFC ran a FREE FOOD promotion on the Oprah Winfrey show. The only problem was the demand was much greater than KFC had anticipated and they stopped accepting the coupon for the FREE FOOD. The promotion turned into a PR nightmare for KFC.
On two separate occasions, Rick and I went to a local KFC restaurant in Spring Texas to redeem our coupon for FREE FOOD and on both occasions we left hungry. On the first visit we were told the wait was over one hour so we left. On our second visit we were told due to overwhelming demand KFC was no longer accepting the coupon. Again we left without any FREE FOOD and we have not been back since.
Our Spring Texas Real Estate blog is not nearly as popular as the Oprah Winfrey Show so I figure it is safe to spread the word about Chipotle’s FREE FOOD promotion. But if due to overwhelming demand you don’t receive any free food, please still use our real estate services and don’t boycott us.
As for Rick and I, we are going to wait a couple of weeks before visiting Chipotle’s new restaurant and when we do visit we will just pay for our food. So there will be no FREE FOOD for us this time. Wait a minute, come to think of it we didn’t get any FREE FOOD at the last FREE FOOD promotion either.

She took us through the process which we thought was daunting and at times frustrating. With her excellent local knowledge (including the area, the builder, the market, local school and tax system to name a few) and experience with building a new home (each steps that need to happen and what to look out for), we were able to find a place quickly and go through the building process smoothly. With the ability to grasp our needs and interests fairly quickly, Jill demonstrated strong representation of our interests, including negotiations on our behalf and recommending additional steps which builders would not typically do. Jill had a strong focus on customer service, not only being responsive and answering every questions in detail, but also proactively go extra miles to help us at every step along the way, including alerting us the things we need to do and watch for, helping us out in the design selection process (which very few agents would do) , walking us through the paper works and highlighting issues. It was our pleasure to know Jill and work with her in our new chapter of life. We are very happy with her excellent work and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. read less
