America’s Habit Burger Grill is eyeing South Korea expansion in partnership with consulting firm Bridging Culture Worldwide.
“South Korea, with its savvy consumers, open-minded culture and interest in global brands is an ideal marketplace for The Habit Burger Grill’s expansion,” said John Phillips, chief global business partnership officer at the company.
He said Habit Burger Grill wants to attract multi-unit franchise partners and ensure mutual success for both parties.
