Littleton, Colo. – Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh has debuted its fresh new prototype in the southwest Denver suburb of Littleton. The restaurant is the first new ground-up buildout of a GARBANZO restaurant to open in the Denver metro area since 2014, and it’s the company’s first new prototype in Denver.
The new GARBANZO restaurant exudes a bright, open and fresh aesthetic for the brand. It features a stand-alone bakery area where guests will be able to see their pitas being kneaded, placed in the oven and puffed to perfection right before their eyes.
In addition, GARBANZO has partnered with Tractor Beverage Co. to offer an updated beverage station including USDA Certified Organic, entirely natural and 100% non-GMO “softer drinks” in the fountain and new Mediterranean “agua frescas” in bubblers. The new “better-for-you-beverage” lineup features flavors such as cucumber, lemongrass, blood orange as well as brighter versions of staples like cola, diet cola and root beer. In addition, there are now non-carbonated “Mediterranean Agua Fresca” drinks that all start with an apple cider vinegar base and offer flavors such as “Berry Patch” (strawberry and raspberry), blackberry spearmint, Mediterranean tart lemonade and a fall-themed orange blossom and cardamom apple cider.
“This new category of ‘Mediterranean agua frescas’ is further evidence of the shift from Mexican to Mediterranean and the result is uncarbonated, unaltered and utterly refreshing,” says Devin Handler, vice president of marketing.
Handler continues: “I’m extremely proud to bring the GARBANZO restaurant of the future to Denver and, specifically, to my neighborhood in Littleton. GARBANZO fans will immediately notice the difference when they step into the new restaurant. It features brighter décor, updated lighting, countertops, booths and wood accents as well as a redefined beverage station. We did this because we are always looking for ways to help our guests feel brighter. We are super excited to bring this enhanced experience to our hometown.”
This restaurant marks the 13th GARBANZO in the Denver market, 16th in Colorado and 29th systemwide. The company is set to open an additional 30+ restaurants by 2022. For more information, visit www.eatgarbanzo.com or www.eatgarbanzofranchising.com.
