Habit founders sell last spots

“After nearly a half-century of proudly preparing patties that became a nationwide success story, Habit Burger Grill founder Brent Reichard and his co-owning brother, Bruce Reichard, are selling the last eight of their restaurants to Yum! Brands, which owns every other Habit in the country. The Reichards had hung onto the Santa Barbara County locations when they sold the rest of the chain in 2007, but the sale of these Habits will pave the way for their retirement. The sale, which will officially shift operations on March 1, 2022, included the original Habit Burger in Old Town Goleta.”

    Happy retirement Brent & Bruce! Chuck and I have appreciated your burgers for a long time and will miss the detail you put into the simplicity.

    I presume the Padres grill will continue to operate under current ownerships and is not part of sale
