What happened to Cal Tortilla in Germantown?

drove by there last night looking for place to eat in the blackout and it was closed. And not just closed, but cleared out of everything - stripped to the bone. Does anyone know what happened to this location?

  1. Chipotle is opening up in the same center soon. Might have something to do with it.

    1. reeeeaaaly? i having been wanting a Chipotle in Germantown forever. kentlands is not particularly close, and that one down in the strip mall across from Lakeforest is awful to get in and out of. i do like Cal tort's chips and queso,

        According to CalTort's facebook page, the Germantown franchise owners closed the store. They are hoping to sell the franchise to new owners and reopen in the same location.

        Chipotle is supposed to be opening in the new building a block away in early fall.
