Habit Restaurants, LLC, an Irvine-based restaurant company whose char-grilled burger concept began in Santa Barbara in 1969, has announced plans to open four additional restaurants in Orange County by the end of the year. There are currently 60 Habit Burger Grill locations throughout California and Arizona and the organization will add a total of 16 restaurants to its expanding empire in 2012. The Habit Burger Grill distinguishes itself in the fast casual burger segment with its signature, flame-grilled Charburger, menu variety and value.
"The Habit has already shown a history of success in Orange County. Customers appreciate quality food made to order, served with a smile and at an affordable price," said Russ Bendel, the company's chief executive officer. "We anticipate our four new locations will add to our positive results here." The Huntington Beach restaurant will open in mid-September on the site of a former Tommy Pastrami at 18001 Beach Boulevard near Talbert Street. The next opening will be at 638 Camino del los Mares in San Clemente, which was previously a Carl's Jr. unit. The Habit in Costa Mesa will be at 1510 Adams Avenue, near Harbor Boulevard. The Irvine address has not yet been disclosed. The average Habit is 2,000 square feet and often features patio dining. Each restaurant employs approximately 35 people. Prior to each opening, The Habit Burger holds previews which serve as fundraisers generating thousands of dollars to various community-supported non-profits.
