Reader: ShopHouse might inspire you to shop for some Chipotle stock

Did you miss the chance to get in on the ground floor of Chipotle, back when Steve Ells opened his first fast-casual burrito shop on East Evans Avenue? You've got another chance with ShopHouse, the Asian fast-casual concept that Chipotle rolled out last Thursday in Washington, D.C.

Here's the take from Josh:

Over on ProofTrader ( a collaborative stock picking site ) one analyst believes the Shophouse concept will end up being a huge catalyst for Chipotle's stock.

Ells may not have been been able to pick a real winner for America's Next Great Restaurant, with Soul Daddy going down, but it looks like he has one of his own.
