New restaurant will celebrate with charity events benefitting Issaquah Schools Foundation and YWCA Family Village along with free burger day ahead of official grand opening
After opening five successful locations since November 2015, The Habit Burger Grill continues to expand throughout Washington state with the opening of its newest location – this time on Seattle’s Eastside in the Issaquah Highlands Grand Ridge Plaza (1676 9th Ave NE) on Wednesday, June 6.
The Issaquah community can preview The Habit’s award-winning custom-built Charburger that is chargrilled over an open flame during Free Burger Day plus all menu items during the fundraising events prior to the official grand opening.
The Habit will partner with two local non-profits, Issaquah Schools Foundation and YWCA Family Village, for the fundraising events. Each will receive 100 percent of the proceeds raised at their respective events to put towards their 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. Those unable to attend the charity events can still get a taste of The Habit during the Free Burger Day.
The full line up of events includes:
- Free Burger Day – Saturday, June 2, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Get a pre-opening sneak peak of the newest location and enjoy a free 100 percent fresh ground beef, chargrilled burger piled high with all the fixings, plus French fries and a regular beverage. Offer is limited to the first 200 people during each time period.
