The Habit Burger Grill Continues Fight to Help End Childhood Hunger in America

— Offers Free Charburger with Cheese for Donations of $2 or More and Sets One Million Dollar Cumulative Donation Goal For No Kid Hungry® —

(IRVINE, CA) Aug. 21, 2017 – The Habit Restaurant, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is continuing its commitment to help end childhood hunger in America by partnering with No Kid Hungry for a third year. This year, The Habit has a goal of raising $400,000, for a three-year grand total of $1,000,000. This equates to 10 million meals to children who face hunger.

One in six kids in the U.S. struggles with hunger. The Habit Burger Grill, together with its loyal guests, is committed to changing this.  The Habit will be collecting donations for No Kid Hungry and offering guests who donate $2 or more to the No Kid Hungry campaign a free Charburger with cheese certificate, good on a return visit now through the end of September.

“We are thrilled to have The Habit Burger Grill participate in their third Dine Out for No Kid Hungry promotion this fall,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President of Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. “Their commitment and support over the past two years has been astounding and has helped us make great strides in helping end child hunger in the United States.”

“At The Habit we are committed to providing quality meals, and for millions of Americans, especially children, those meals don’t always come easily. That’s why supporting No Kid Hungry is so important to us. We know that with the support of our loyal guests, we can make a difference. We want to give something back to the communities we serve as well as those who support our efforts,” said Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit Burger Grill.

Last year The Habit contributed over $400,000 to No Kid Hungry, providing more than 4 million meals to kids in need.

“Our hope is to continue to grow our support and help more kids across the country,” added Bendel.

On August 21, Habit Burger Grill and No Kid Hungry executives will ring the NASDAQ closing bell to call attention to the issue of childhood hunger in America and kickoff this year’s National Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign.

A culinary and guest favorite, Hatch Chiles are grown in New Mexico and were created by combining three chiles to produce the perfect blend of heat and flavor.

The Habit chargrills each Hatch Chile over an open flame to bring out its smoky flavor and deepen the savory taste in the new, limited time Hatch Chile menu items, including:

– Grilled Hatch and Pepper Jack Charburger ($4.99) featuring chargrilled Hatch green chiles and perfectly melted Pepper Jack cheese atop a delicious charburger with tomatoes, lettuce and The Habit’s new creamy spiced Hatch green chile aioli.

– Grilled Hatch and Golden Chicken Salad ($7.50) combines a golden hand-breaded, fried chicken breast and chargrilled Hatch green chiles, serving them with fresh garden greens, feta cheese, crumbled bacon, carrots and diced tomatoes. This tasty salad is tossed in The Habit’s tangy house-made cilantro lime ranch dressing.

–  Grilled Hatch and Pepper Jack Chicken Sandwich ($6.99) with juicy chargrilled chicken breast on toasted sourdough bread, this flavorful sandwich includes grilled Hatch green chiles, melted Pepper Jack cheese, fresh tomatoes, lettuce and The Habit’s new creamy spiced Hatch green chile aioli.

These items will be available through October 3 in all participating restaurants during the Hatch Chile Season.
