The Habit Burger Grill is Poised for Continued Greatness in 2023

The Habit Burger Grill is flying high into 2023 as a loyal fan favorite and a top, award-winning franchise opportunity – and it shows. The Southern California-based fast-casual chain, with 350+ restaurants across 14 states, boasts an operations model, digital hospitality presence, tech-forward practices, and training systems firing on all cylinders.

In 2022 alone, The Habit opened 33 new restaurants. It also marked a milestone with nearly 2 million downloads of its mobile app by devoted guests clamoring for the brand’s fresh, cooked-to-order chargrilled burgers and handcrafted sandwiches. The digital hospitality platform is one of a kind, merging operator-driven and guest-centric features that tie stress-free ordering and seamless operational capabilities into one.

“Over the last several years, we’ve doubled-down on making our franchise model a forceful and appealing option for experienced franchise professionals who are looking for a venture to elevate their portfolio. Through the strength of our training, marketing, operations and technology abilities, we’ve been able to just that. And, we are eager to continue the momentum The Habit has built around growth, sales, and innovation into 2023,” said John Phillips, Chief Global Business Partnership Officer for The Habit Burger Grill. “We look forward to expanding our nationwide presence even further with owners who share our commitment to delivering high-quality food at reasonable prices.”
