The Habit Burger Grill Introduces ‘Golden Chicken Sandwich’ Debuting a Fried Chicken Option for the First Time

New Sandwich Available for a Limited Time Only

(IRVINE, CA) Oct. 3, 2016 – For the first time ever, Habit Restaurants, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is introducing a Golden Chicken Sandwich nationwide.
The Golden Chicken Sandwich is the perfect addition to The Habit menu that is known for its variety, quality and value. This Golden Chicken Sandwich ($6.25) starts with a fresh, filleted chicken breast that is hand-dipped into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, not just once but twice, before being fried to perfection and custom made to order. This extra care gives the Golden Chicken a crunchy, flavorful crust while keeping all the juiciness. The Golden Chicken Sandwich is topped with a new spicy red pepper sauce and served with fresh sliced tomato, lettuce and tangy pickles on a soft toasted bun.
“Better burgers are truly just the start at The Habit, and this new Golden Chicken Sandwich complements our overall menu of high quality, deliciously custom-crafted food and gives guests another favorite item to enjoy at The Habit,” said Adam Baird, executive chef at The Habit Burger Grill.
