Whole Foods set to capitalize on Chipotle losses

A Chipotle Mexican Grill in Robinson Township, Pa.

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.’s loss might be Whole Foods Market Inc.’s gain.

RBC Capital Markets estimates that Chipotle’s food safety concerns represent a US$933-million revenue opportunity for competitors, with Whole-foods potentially being one of the biggest beneficiaries since half its locations are within a mile of the Chipotle, and nearly 85 percent are within three miles of a Chipotle.
