PHOENIX, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Habit Burger Grill is opening its fourth Arizona location on Wednesday, June 20 in Phoenix located on 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.


The community is encouraged to join Habit Burger as the offer sneak peak of the tasty menu during their charity tie-in events on Sunday, June 17 and Monday, the 18th. From 12-2 p.m. on June 17, The Habit will be open and will donate 100% of all proceeds of all menu items to the Arizona Humane Society. The Habit will re-open from 5-7 p.m. that day and will donate all proceeds to Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix. On Monday, June 18, they will be open from 12-2pm with all proceeds benefiting the Barrow Neurological Foundation.

During the three previous grand opening events, The Habit Burger Grill raised thousands of dollars for various local charities including The Boys and Girls Club, Phoenix Children's Hospital, United Phoenix Firefighter Charities, and more.

"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.
