For our blog series talking to superfans, today we talk to Tom Smith, Chipotle superfan.
Tributize: What are you passionate about?
Tom Smith: Chipotle and food with integrity.
Tributize: Why are you passionate about Chipotle?
Tom Smith: They make healthy food that's good for you and I am able to eat around my allergies to wheat, milk, and refined sugar. I've lost 40 pounds while eating Chipotle and have NEVER gotten sick from what I eat there. My doctor says I have the best "blood numbers" she's ever seen and to keep doing what I'm doing. I also workout six days a week and have a greens and fruit smoothie for breakfast and dinner. As such, I'm passionate about staying healthy as well.
Tributize: How much time and money do you spend each year on your passion?
Tom Smith: I've been eating at Chipotle about six days a week for the past 11 years. I spend an average of $7 each visit so I spend about $2.100 a year not including when I get comped. Six days a week instead of seven because I have lunch with my father every Sunday and it's too spicy for him. It will evolve to seven days a week at some point.
Tributize: How long have you been a fan?
Tom Smith: It will be 11 years this February.
Tributize: What is the craziest thing that you have done to show your passion?
Tom Smith: I tweet and post on Instagram every day. I'll have burrito bow number 3,098 today for lunch. Whenever I am traveling, I find out where the nearest Chipotle is to my hotel and try to eat there unless meals are provided.
Tributize: Thanks for talking to us today Tom and enjoy 2018!
