From the Wire | The Habit Burger Grill Opens Today

June 20th, 2012

Some news items don’t need translation. That’s why DPJ launched the From the Wire series, so we could serve the destinations here by posting information and announcements – in their own words.

The Habit Burger Grill is opening today near 7th Avenue and McDowell Road (534 W. McDowell Road). Phoenix continues to be a positive growth market for The Habit, with three already successful locations around the Valley. The Irvine-based concept continues to grow with over 50 locations in California; Arizona is the only other state with The Habit Burger locations. The first location in Phoenix opened in May 2011.

During their three grand opening events, The Habit Burger Grill raised thousands of dollars for various local charities including the Arizona Humane Society, Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix, and Barrow Neurological Foundation.

“We are excited to continue our growth in Arizona with our newest Habit here in Phoenix,” says Russ Bendel, President and CEO of Habit Restaurants, LLC. “Our fourth location will give even more people a new ‘Habit’ worth repeating.”

Everything served at The Habit is reasonably priced compared to other casual dining or other “gourmet burger” establishments ($2.95 for an original Charburger). The Habit also serves freshly grilled sandwiches, specialty salads tossed to order, onion rings, sweet potato fries and a variety of hand-blended shakes and malts.

The Habit is best known for their made-to-order “Charburgers” grilled over an open flame and their friendly, inviting service. They use only fresh, quality ingredients, and always live up to their motto: “There’s No Substitute For Quality!”

More about The Habit Burger Grill

Over 40 years ago, The Habit opened in Santa Barbara, California. Soon after, 16-year old Brent Reichard got his first job flipping burgers there and a few years later he and his brother Bruce made the life-changing decision to buy it. Through hard work and dedication The Habit has grown a lot since then, but remains focused on one simple philosophy – always deliver high quality food and great service at reasonable prices.
