After opening four successful locations in Washington since November 2015, The Habit Burger Grill continues to build momentum and expand throughout the state with the opening of its newest location in the Westgate North Shopping Center in Tacoma on Wednesday, February 14.
The Tacoma-area community can get a preview of The Habit Burger Grill’s fresh, made-to-order items, including the award-winning Charburger among other flavorful menu items during Free Burger Days and fundraising events prior to the official grand opening.
The Habit will partner with two local non-profits, USO Northwest and Nourish Pierce County, for the fundraising events. Each non-profit will receive 100% of the proceeds raised at their respective events to put towards their amazing causes. The events are open to the public and provide a sneak peek into what the restaurant will offer guests before The Habit officially opens its doors on Valentine’s Day. Those unable to attend the charity events can still get a taste of The Habit during the Free Burger Days.
The full line up of events includes:
