Chipotle, Just Eat hope for some spring normalcy

"I'm very optimistic that people are going to be coming back to dining rooms," Chipotle's Chief Executive Officer Brian Niccol said.

Just Eat CEO Jitse Groen predicted that vaccination drives, coupled with warmer weather, meant lockdown measures would ease in the next few months and there would be a move back to normalcy in Europe.

The two companies, which have both prospered during the coronavirus pandemic, saw little downside to the idea that consumers would want to eat in dining rooms again - instead of grabbing burritos to go or ordering in-home delivery.

Both CEOs predicted a quick recovery in 2020 followed by years of possible expansion.
