The HATCH is Back at The Habit Burger Grill

The Habit Restaurant, Inc. is continuing its commitment to help end childhood hunger in America by partnering with No Kid Hungry for a third year. This year, The Habit has a goal of raising $400,000, for a three-year grand total of $1,000,000. This equates to 10 million meals to children who face hunger.

One in six kids in the U.S. struggles with hunger. The Habit Burger Grill, together with its loyal guests, is committed to changing this. The Habit will be collecting donations for No Kid Hungry and offering guests who donate $2 or more to the No Kid Hungry campaign a free Charburger with cheese certificate, good on a return visit now through the end of September.

“We are thrilled to have The Habit Burger Grill participate in their third Dine Out for No Kid Hungry promotion this fall,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President of Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. “Their commitment and support over the past two years has been astounding and has helped us make great strides in helping end child hunger in the United States.”

“At The Habit we are committed to providing quality meals, and for millions of Americans, especially children, those meals don’t always come easily. That’s why supporting No Kid Hungry is so important to us. We know that with the support of our loyal guests, we can make a difference. We want to give something back to the communities we serve as well as those who support our efforts,” said Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit Burger Grill.

Last year The Habit contributed over $400,000 to No Kid Hungry, providing more than 4 million meals to kids in need.

The Habit Burger is exploring the delicious tastes of Hatch Chiles through the return of their seasonal Hatch Chile menu. Featuring a delicious Grilled Hatch and Pepper Jack Charburger, a Grilled Hatch and Golden Chicken Salad, and a Grilled Hatch and Pepper Jack Chicken Sandwich, the seasonal menu serves up a variety of tasty options for everyone to enjoy. 

“Our hope is to continue to grow our support and help more kids across the country,” added Bendel.

On August 21, Habit Burger Grill and No Kid Hungry executives will ring the NASDAQ closing bell to call attention to the issue of childhood hunger in America and kickoff this year’s National Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign.

For a third year, The Habit is continuing its fight against childhood hunger in partnership with No Kid Hungry. On Aug. 29, the Habit is kicking off a fundraiser, offering guests who donate $2 or more a free charburger. Last year The Habit raised more than $400,000 that provided more than four million meals for kids in need, and have set a $400,000 goal for this year.

Yogurtland ‘s Newest Scratch-Made Flavors

Share Deliciousness and Hope with Every Cup

-Featuring New Hope Cup to Support Charities And
Two Limited Edition 3D Collectable Spoons -

Inspired by delicious desserts from around the world, Yogurtland’s newest flavors are a way to continue to enjoy all of life’s favorite moments while providing hope for those less fortunate. Along with a line-up of five new delicious, handcrafted flavors, Yogurtland is introducing a “Hope Cup” where guests can help support Yogurtland Cares and charities that support children and women in need.

Before embarking on their flavor journey, guests will decide to fill an original Yogurtland cup or for an extra $1 they can choose the Hope Cup to fill with their handcrafted flavors and topping choices. All proceeds from the Hope Cups will equally benefit the following three Yogurtland Cares supported charities:

- Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals – Providing treatment, comfort and hope to millions of sick kids and their families.

- Exodus Cry – Assisting and empowering victims of exploitation around the world.

- Rescuing Lives – Rescuing and caring for widows and orphaned children in poverty stricken areas around the world.
“At Yogurtland, we are grateful for the support our guests show us every day, and we feel it is important for us to share that support and become a beacon of hope for others. Our new Hope Cup will allow us to team up with our fans and provide needed support for children and women in less fortunate circumstances,” said Chad Bailey, senior director of marketing, Yogurtland.
The new promotional flavors, available from August 7 to October 1, give froyo lovers the chance to explore new delicious yogurt combinations and pairings while collecting two special edition spoons. For the first time, Yogurtland is offering three-dimensional spoons. These specially designed spoons reflect the theme of hope with a bright yellow sunflower shape and a charming pink flowerpot shape.

Additionally, Yogurtland is offering two promotional toppings - coconut caramel cookies, available August 7, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds, available, September 4. The five delectable promotional flavors are:

- Blissful Banana Toffee Pie- Available August 7 and inspired by the English dessert ‘banofee pie,’ this flavor will have froyo lovers enjoying every spoonful. By combining real bananas with a toffee base and adding hints of graham cracker and shortbread, this tasty froyo perfectly captures the spirit of this popular, decadent dessert pie.

- Molten Lava Cake Gelato- Beginning August 7, guests can enjoy this flavor that derives its taste from the French classic soufflĂ©. This flavor exemplifies a perfect chocolate cake, mixing cocoa and shortbread cookie creating every chocolate lover’s dream flavor.

- Spicy Sweet Chili Mango Sorbet- Guests will be able to explore this tasty treat beginning August 21. As a tribute to the popular combination in Mexico, this flavor brings together Alphonso mango with hints of red chili and lemon flavors. This refreshing flavor delivers the perfect balance of sweet and spice in every spoonful.

- Simply Sublime Pear Tart- Reminiscent of the Asian pear, this scratch-made flavor will be offered in stores beginning September 4. Starting with a pear puree made with Bartlett pears, this flavor mimics sweet, fresh, and ripe in every spoonful. This tart based flavor will have froyo enthusiasts feeling as though they are biting into a deliciously ripe pear.

- Perfectly Roasted Pistachio Almond- Starting September 18, this no sugar added pistachio almond yogurt will have froyo fans satisfied without the added guilt. Incorporating roasted pistachio butter and real almond butter, this flavor provides the perfect nutty combination that will be sure to please all yogurt lovers.

Yogurtland’s flavorologists are continually seeking craveable flavors that keep fans loving their experience. Yogurtland owns its own dairy and by controlling the frozen yogurt making process, the company can deliver the highest quality flavors, setting new standards for millions of fans.
