Chipotle closes Dallas restaurant where mice were spotted

Posted: Updated:

A Chipotle in Dallas is facing some trouble after an incident that had nothing to do with its food.
Our James Munoz explains in today's business report.

Walmart is bringing back the app that lets shoppers bypass the checkout line and pay for their purchases on their smartphones.  The retailer first tested the app, called Scan & Go, in 2013, but discontinued it after customers complained it was confusing to use.  But the app has been redesigned and is currently being tested at stores in Houston, Orlando and near Walmart's headquarter's in Bentonville, Arkansas.  The test is now being expanded to stores in Dallas. 

Chipotle has temporarily closed a Dallas location after a customer posted a video of rodents inside the restaurant.  A spokesman said it will remain closed while the company  checks the 100-year-old building in Dallas' west end neighborhood.  This marks the latest trouble for the fast-casual chain which has been trying to win back customers after sales plunged following an e. coli outbreak in 2015.  Sales rose 8 % in the second quarter, but last month a restaurant in Virginia was temporarily closed after dozens of customers became ill from norovirus.  

Following last week's announcement from Japanese automakers Toyota and Mazda about a joint venture with a facility in the U.S., Kentucky's Governor Matt Bevin said his state plans to make a major push to land the $1.6 billion manufacturing facility and mentioned a 1,550 acre site in Glendale, Kentucky as a prime location.  Neither automaker has suggested a new location for the facility, but with the potential for it to generate 4,000 jobs, a bidding war between states is expected.
