It has been rumored for some time that Chipotle is coming to Pittsfield, and now it's confirmed. First off, let's get the pronunciation thing out of the way.

It's CHIPOTLE not CHIPOLTE.

Even Chipotle's Facebook page can't believe the photo above!

So, for anyone who has driven near Berkshire Crossing within the last six months, you've probably seen the construction of the new Taco Bell next to Med Express near the Dalton line.

When Taco Bell moves across the street (late 2021), this of course leaves the existing Taco Bell building vacant. Well, we know now that Chipotle plans to move into that building.

Chipotle Mexican Grill filed a notice of intent with the Conservation Commission for the proposed redevelopment of the existing Taco Bell.
Taco Bell and Chipotle will be neighbors, as the commission signed off on the construction of a new Taco Bell across the street on Dalton Avenue last year that is expected to open in late 2021. -iberkshires.com
Some of the parking lot will be repaved and the drive-up window will be used for mobile app orders as Chipotle will not have traditional "drive-thru" service, according to iberkshires.com.
Chipotle currently operates around 2600 stores worldwide, and some locations nearest to The Berkshires include Hadley, MA., plus the Albany and Springfield areas have Chipotles as well.
I have only good things to say about Samir and Hot Harry's, with that said; however, I love Chipotle.
