Charlotte residents will soon be able to get burrito bowls without even having to change out of their sweatpants.

The CEO of Postmates, the San Francisco startup delivery company that said this week it has partnered with Chipotle Mexican Grill, tweeted that Charlotte is next to get service. The company currently offers delivery in 67 cities.

The service will be available in Charlotte on May 14, a company spokeswoman wrote in an email to the Observer.

Postmates offers an app for iPhone and Android users to place their food orders, and the company’s local couriers purchase and deliver the orders.

The cost of delivery is based on distance, the New York Times reported this week. It starts at $4.99 and can go as high as $7.99 an order. Chipotle itself doesn’t offer delivery and announced the Postmates news in a conference call with investors this week.

There are about a dozen Chipotle restaurants in the Charlotte area.
