KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) — Plans are underway to bring Chipotle Mexican Grill’s burritos, bowls, and other items to the Model City.

Chipotle is looking to open a restaurant at 1401 East Stone Drive, between Hardee’s and the former Rush Street Grill, which is now Take 5 Oil Change.

The site is currently home to a closed car wash, which will be demolished.
