Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, a Denver-based fast-casual restaurant concept featuring an authentic Mediterranean menu, announced its expansion into a third Colorado market: Boulder. The 13th Garbanzo location opens December 22 and is located on the 29th Street Mall at 1905 29th Street. Restaurant hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The latest Garbanzo restaurant joins 10 Denver-metro locations in Highlands, Greenwood Village, Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Park Meadows, Highlands Ranch, University Hills, Lone Tree, and Glendale, as well as two Colorado Springs locations in the Broadmoor Towne Center and First and Main Town Center.

“We are especially thrilled to open a Garbanzo in Boulder and introduce our fresh, healthy, and authentic concept to this distinctive community,” says Alon Mor, Garbanzo’s founder. “The people of Boulder are uniquely wellness-minded and responsive to restaurants that provide healthy menu items. Garbanzo maintains dedicated commitment to healthy eating and living, as well as supporting the local community. We know Garbanzo will be right at home in the heart of Boulder.”

On grand opening day, the first 100 guests will receive a free Garbanzo tote, and all guests will be able to give the prize wheel a spin to win fun Garbanzo items. The new Boulder location will partner with Share Our Strength, a nonprofit focused on ending child hunger in the U.S., specifically in Colorado. Fundraising efforts will directly support the nonprofit’s Boulder community Cooking Matters program, which teaches underprivileged families and children how to cook and eat healthy.
