    Chipotle: Why Innovation Won't Be Easy

    A Tuesday note from Mizuho Securities, in which its analysts set an “underperform” rating and a $330 share price target that’s well below current levels and FactSet’s current mean target of about $416, discussed reasons menu innovation could challenge the company. “In a concept where the vast majority of traffic occurs in the lunch daypart and the productivity of its line crew thrives on the simple ordering option tree, innovation can carry unintended consequences,” the analysts wrote. Some of their observations: • The analysts lauded management’s stated intention to carefully craft processes around the actual production of new menu items, noting what might be interpreted as “a lower risk tolerance with regards to menu development.” • They also recently visited the Next Kitchen, where they observed some of the challenges—which we discussed after our own visit—firsthand.
