Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, a Colorado-based fast-casual concept featuring Mediterranean cuisine, announced the grand opening of its 30th location nationwide. The new restaurant opened Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at 4575 E. Cactus Rd., Suite 140 and is the second Garbanzo in Phoenix near Paradise Valley Mall.
“We saw considerable growth potential in the metro Phoenix marketplace from the start, but even we’ve been surprised by just how fast things have taken off around here,” says Steven Morris, president and CEO of GMG Arizona LLC. “We’re thrilled that Arizonans can now discover why Garbanzo has seen such remarkable growth in such a short time. We’re ecstatic that we’ve already become a fast-casual favorite for the increasingly health-conscious Phoenix community.”
“I feel there is a huge audience in Arizona for the authentic taste and healthy options Garbanzo has to offer,” says Alon Mor, Garbanzo founder, president, and CEO. “Our made-from-scratch products have wide appeal while our authentic Mediterranean recipes provide an unequaled approach to fast-casual dining. After just one taste, I know the Phoenix residents will be Garbanzo fans.”
Garbanzo offers guests a variety of Mediterranean items with an emphasis on flavor, authentic tastes, and quality, as well as a healthy trans-fat free menu. Guests can enjoy traditional favorites such as kabobs, gyros, Greek salads, or customize their meal with items such as pita, Mediterranean wraps, falafel, hummus, seasoned rice, sauces, and dressings. All Garbanzo salads and sauces are prepared on-site daily, and the pita are made from scratch throughout the day. Additionally, several ingredients are bought locally and some are imported directly from the Mediterranean region.
