Chipotle should focus on targeted marketing campaigns to their consumer target. These advertising campaigns should focus on the locally sourced, environmentally friendly practices that the brand is embodying and living. Since the target market is also sensitive to product price, these campaigns are an opportunity to connect the higher rate with the quality of the product and the social benefits that are created by paying that additional amount as a consumer.
