California-based The Habit Burger Grill is opening Sunday in Chongqing, the fourth-largest city in China, at Terminal 3 in the Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport.
“It is an honor to partner with HMSHost, a global leader in dining with an impressive track record in China. We are excited to open this flagship location at one of China’s busiest airports,” John Phillips, chief business development officer of The Habit Burger Grill, said in a company press release.
David Mackay, regional managing director of Asia Pacific HMSHost International, said he is pleased to develop the company’s first Habit Burger Grill restaurant in the APAC region.
“We have enjoyed the collaboration between HMSHost and the Habit Burger team as we look to redefine the food and beverage offerings at Chongqing International Airport,” he said in the release. “We look forward to boosting our presence in the region with the Habit Burger brand and giving travelers the ultimate HMSHost experience: attention.”
“We look forward to serving the community handcrafted, chargrilled food with California-fresh quality and flavor,” Yang Ming Ong, general manager of Asia Pacific, The Habit Burger Grill, said in the release. “Chongqing is the second city for The Habit Burger Grill in China after Shanghai, and we are actively seeking partners to build and develop in other major cities.”
