    Groton — At least two people have emailed The Day recently asking when the Chipotle Mexican Grill at the corner of Route 12 and Toll Gate Road is scheduled to open, and we have an answer: early to mid-August.

    Developer Henry Resnikoff said earlier this week the unofficial date is Aug. 12, give or take a few days because of supply chain issues.

    Chipotle spokesperson Erin Wolford said the restaurant is scheduled to open in Groton in early August but it's still too far out to give the exact day. She added that this location will feature a digital drive-thru pickup lane, called a Chipotlane.

    Resnikoff said he delivered the building to Chipotle on May 5, which was within the timeframe he projected well before the coronavirus pandemic. He said there were some supply chain issues but they weren't critical, and the contractors were able to find substitutes or other suppliers.

    Resnikoff said the general contractor is Fortunato Construction Group of Kensington, and the site contractor is Cherry Hill Inc. of North Branford.
