New restaurant will celebrate with charity events this weekend benefitting USO Northwest and Nourish Pierce County along with free burger days ahead of the official grand opening
After opening four successful locations since November 2015, The Habit Burger Grill continues to build momentum and expand throughout Washington state with the opening of its newest location in the Westgate North Shopping Center at 2601 N Pearl St. in Tacoma on Wednesday, Feb. 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 will receive 100 percent 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.
