About the Company

The company was founded in 1969 as a family business. The first restaurant was opened in Santa Barbara, California. It was initially called the Hamburger Habit, and specialized in the making of burgers. The restaurant owners divorced in 1980 and decided to sell the restaurant to one of their cooks, Brent Reichard. Reichard and his younger brother Bruce had big dreams for the restaurant. Their goal was to make top quality burgers and sell them at a reasonable price.

With this goal in mind, they started looking for the freshest ingredients to include in their burgers. They also decided to diversify their menu to include tuna, chicken sandwiches with bacon strips, malts and salads. Their commitment to quality never wavered and this began to show results with time. They would not compromise on quality for money, which explains why The Habit Burger menu prices tend to be a bit high but quite reasonable. Within a short period, the company had opened a number of other restaurants in California and beyond.

The restaurant caught the eye of a private equity firm. The KarpReilly firm bought the young company in 2007 after which it grew exponentially. It went public in 2014, and now boasts of over two hundred locations in several states around the country. The company also has nine food trucks to its name.

Final Verdict

That the Habit Burger makes some of the best burgers around the country is not a question. The burgers were actually ranked as the best by the Consumer Reports in 2014. Many people around the country also claim the same. The extra effort put into creating the burgers certainly pays off. Although The Habit Burger Menu prices are a bit high, the burgers are certainly worth every single cent you spend on them.
