Chipotle has a very high inventory turnover ratio due to the fact that the company is able to purchase products, such as meats and vegetables, fresh and use it before it expires. This allows them to keep less inventory on hand. These ratios indicate that Chipotle sold more than $100 dollars of inventory for every $1 dollar of inventory it had on the shelves.
