humble beginnings …in Santa Barbara, California in 1969, The Habit Burger Grill has been operating under the same simple philosophy: Always deliver high quality food and great service at reasonable prices. By focusing on this core philosophy, we have grown to 350+ restaurants in California, Arizona, New Jersey, Florida, Nevada, Idaho, North Carolina, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Utah, and Washington as well as internationally. Now, we’re on our way to an estimated potential of over 2,000 locations in the United States and many more globally. But no matter how many restaurants we open, we will always focus on our Company Mission “To become everyone’s favorite Habit, one burger at a time.”
THE habit? the people At The Habit Burger Grill, our people make the difference. We have a quality-first mindset and know that quality is a key ingredient in everything we do. Our in-house and corporate teams promote an environment that encourages continual improvement as well as personal and professional growth. Through our daily pursuit of excellence, we strive to delight our Guests with enthusiasm, teamwork and a mission to always do the right thing.
the food Our commitment to quality starts with our food, and The Habit Burger Grill is a chef-driven brand that keeps menu innovation on the forefront. Our corporate executive chef Jason Triail is the mastermind behind our culinary flavors, drawing up fresh new seasonal creations that align with our core menu and are all handcrafted for our Guests using only high-quality ingredients. From our signature Charburgers, to our line-caught sushi grade ahi tuna, marinated chicken and tenderloin steak all chargrilled over an open flame, plus our made-to-order salads and sandwiches, along with seasonal features, we’ve mastered more than just amazing burgers.
