Based on previous discussions between executives, the whole enchilada is likely going to increase between 3 and 5 percent, which isn’t a lot to pay for all that sustainability, right? The changes, which the AP reports are the chain’s first in three years, should begin hitting menu boards within the next month and will be in full effect by the summer. Hopefully by that time, the drug-cartel-induced lime shortage will have fizzled out and no one will even think of bringing up the “guacapocalypse.” [AP, Related]
