February 8 might not mean much to the majority of people, but for the brass behind Chipotle, that day is all too important.
Call it a reboot, a "national meeting" as Chipotle is referring to it as, or just a chance to show the public that this company is addressing issues.
What you definitely can say is that it's the most important meeting Chipotle will have in its history. The company is announcing that on February 8 all the stores will be closing for, as previously mentioned, a national meeting to address concerns and actual reports from the general public as it relates to food poisoning occurring as the food chain.
About 500 people have reported becoming ill after eating at the store since last summer, July specifically. Reports have also suggested that the bad news about Chipotle isn't over just yet, either.
The number of reports in that time period is shocking and appalling, and the disregard it would seem for health and wellness of customers stretches into food preparation and the lack of employees adhering to person health as well, with Chipotle reportedly saying that some employees didn't follow the hand washing protocol. This occurred just this past December in Boston.
