Habit Burger Gets Permit Approvals 4 Weeks Early in Torrance, CA

Permit Place recently completed a vital project for Habit Burger, a new building for a restaurant in Torrance, California. This permit expediting project involved building, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, health, and trash enclosure permits.


Our team faced significant challenges during the project, the most notable being that the plan check could not begin without prior entitlement approval. This requirement posed a potential delay that could significantly impact the project timeline and overall success.

Solutions and Strategies

To navigate the complexities of the entitlement approval and subsequent permits, our team employed strategic planning and innovative problem-solving techniques. The crucial breakthrough came when we opted to separate the interior and exterior permits, which allowed the plan check to commence prior to the complete entitlement approval. 

Moreover, our due diligence process was instrumental in streamlining the process. We ensured detailed upfront identification of key contacts, adherence to submission protocols, and thorough understanding of the local building codes and contractor requirements. This preparation facilitated smoother interactions with the various departments involved.

Project Wins

The estimated turnaround time for the project was 12 months, but through efficient strategy and relentless effort, we managed to reduce it to 11 months. A significant project win was the innovative separation of permits, allowing for an earlier start of construction.

Client Feedback

Habit Burger expressed satisfaction with the expedited processes and outcome that exceeded expectations. The quicker completion not only allowed for earlier restaurant operations but also minimized potential revenue loss due to delays.

The Habit Burger project in Torrance represents a clear illustration of Permit Place’s capability to handle complex permitting challenges through careful planning, innovative strategy, and rigorous execution. Our proactive measures and detailed due diligence ensured that we not only met but exceeded our project goals, ultimately securing our client’s investment and operational timeline.
