EMV chips with that Chipotle PoS breach?

SC Magazine

After detecting “unauthorized activity” on its network, Chipotle Tuesday confirmed that its payment processing system was breached, sparking hope among some researchers that the incident will prompt wider adoption of EMV technology. Chipotle reportedly said in 2015 that it would not be upgrading to EMV chips, claiming that it would slow down customer lines. The company believes the breach occurred between March 24 and April 18 and Chipotle is currently working with a cybersecurity firm and law enforcement to investigate the issue. No further details were provided into the breach.
