Supply Chain Procurement - Internship

Newport Beach, California 610 Newport Center Drive, 92660
Supply Chain Procurement - Internship (23000191)



Food served fast does not have to be a typical fast-food experience.  Chipotle has always done things differently, both in and out of our restaurants. We are changing the face of fast food, starting conversations, and directly supporting efforts to shift the future of farming and food. We hope you will join us as we continue to learn, evolve, and shape what comes next on our mission to make better food accessible to everyone.



You as an intern will be tasked with leading an 8 to 10-week week project that addresses our key strategic objectives and gives the intern the opportunity to directly impact our supply chain in a measurable way.



The intern will lead a project to optimize the pack sizes of products we deliver to restaurants, reducing food waste and improving the efficiency of our restaurants.

Inner packs should be aligned to restaurant usage and hold times. If a pack size is too large for restaurants to use during the allowed hold time for a product, the restaurant will often need to throw away remaining product. Outer packs should be aligned to restaurant usage, especially for cold chain items, where reducing pack size may create more room in the cooler, reducing NRO costs.


The intern will work closely with their manager, financial planning & analysis, and category managers to align on the opportunity size and a target list of pack sizes to optimize at the start of their internship. The intern will coordinate communication and implementation of new pack sizes directly with suppliers, confirming pack sizes can be changed without increasing costs, collecting updated packaging information, and putting together a presentation on the proposed changes and timelines for packaging transitions for cross-functional partners to review.
