The Habit Burger Restaurants wants to help twenty people reach their learning goals. In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the company will award scholarships to twenty deserving students who are either Habit team members or guests. The deadline to apply for one of the $2,500 scholarships is October 31, 2019 and the scholarships will be awarded at a local Habit Burger restaurant between November 15 and December 15.

“At The Habit, we believe in taking care of our local community and as we mark our 50th year, we want to give extra attention to the next generation. That’s why this scholarship effort is so important to us,” says Charlotte Lucich, director of marketing at The Habit Burger Grill. “We are proud to offer these scholarships that invest in the future of both, our team members and guests, and will foster the growth of our future community leaders.”

To apply for the scholarships, applicants can either create a 60-second video or write a 250-word essay that explains their career and educational goals and how the scholarship will help them make a positive impact on their community.

To go with the video or essay, applicants need to submit a ‘Habit selfie’ that shows just how much they enjoy The Habit Burger Grill.

“A picture is worth a thousand words, and we are excited to see these photos and the creativity of our fans,” says Lucich.

As the company celebrates its 50th anniversary, The Habit Burger Grill aims to continually prove that its loyal fan-base extends beyond the communities where its more than 265 restaurants operate. 

Burgers are just the beginning at The Habit where the menu also includes hand-cut salads, grilled sandwiches including line-caught, sushi grade ahi tuna, fresh chicken, and hand-filleted marinated grilled tri-tip, and sides including onion rings, sweet potato and French fries, and tempura green beans. Guests can choose from a variety of peppers, lemons, limes, and sauces at a complimentary condiment bar to customize the flavor of their meal.

The first Habit opened in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969 and the company has since grown to over 265 restaurants in 12 states throughout Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, and Washington as well as six international locations.
