If America runs on Dunkin', American tennis player Taylor Fritz runs on Chipotle. The top-ranked U.S. man on the ATP Tour said earlier this year that it was a "dream come true" to unveil a new brand deal with the restaurant chain, and has been sporting a patch of the company's logo on his clothing around the world ever since (among other perks, like getting free meals at any Chipotle restaurant whenever he wants).

Fritz was already on record that a hearty Chipotle bowl is his go-to meal after "a really tough workout," and now, fans at home can experience what it's like to eat like him and other elite American athletes ahead of this summer's Paris Olympics.

The 2022 BNP Paribas Open champion is joined by basketball player Anthony Edwards, soccer star Sophia Smith, beach volleyball player Sara Hughes, and skateboarder Jagger Eaton on "Team Chipotle," and each member of the quintet has hand-crafted a new menu item at the fast-casual Mexican food chain, which were unveiled earlier this week. Fritz's signature meal, which customers can order exclusively through Chipotle's website and mobile app, is a bowl with a white rice base, a double serving of chicken, with cheese, guacamole and sour cream on top.

"Every one of our Team Chipotle athletes has had a unique journey," Chipotle's chief brand officer, Chris Brandt, said in a statement. "By highlighting their stories and how Chipotle has been a key component of their training regimens, we hope to inspire and fuel the next generation of great American athletes."


Fritz and company are the lynchpins of Chipotle's Real Food for Real Athletes campaign, which according to the brand, "focuses on helping athletes across all levels perform their best by providing proper nutrition through real food and fresh ingredients." In the past, the chain has partnered with players from the U.S women's national soccer team and NHL hockey players.

In addition to their eponymous meals, all five are also featured in new episodes of Chipotle’s “Unwrapped” video series, and in his clip, Fritz speaks about his big goals for 2024, which include an Olympic debut later this month.

"A big thing for me is eating things for me that are good for me that I still enjoy," Fritz says. "At Chipotle, it's just having that healthy, reliable meal that I can count on. I couldn't be happier to have such a cool partnership."

Fritz is seeded No. 13 this fortnight at Wimbledon, and showed the mettle of a man who was properly fueled in a speedy first-round win. He raced through his opening match on Tuesday against Australia's Christopher O'Connell 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in just 91 minutes.
