Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh has debuted its fresh new prototype in the southwest Denver suburb of Littleton.

The restaurant, located at 5846 S. Wadsworth Blvd., Ste. 3300, in Littleton, is the first new ground-up build out of a Garbanzo restaurant to open in the Denver Metro since 2014, and it’s the company’s first new prototype in Denver.

True to form, 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 lovingly kneaded, placed in the oven and puffed to perfection right before their eyes.

Garbanzo wants the world to taste how delicious nutritious can be and feel brighter on the inside, which is why each restaurant only uses fresh, high-quality, preservative-free ingredients. And since real food deserves real drinks, Garbanzo has partnered with Tractor Beverage Co. to offer an updated beverage station including USDA Certified Organic, entirely natural and 100 percent non-GMO “softer drinks” in the fountain and new Mediterranean “agua frescas” in bubblers.

The new “better-for-you-beverage” line-up features flavors as bright as the Mediterranean itself like 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.” said VP of Marketing Devin Handler.

All of this is now offered in a casual, welcoming environment that will make guests feel comfortable while they discover how to eat better and feel brighter – at a great value.

“I’m extremely proud to bring the GARBANZO restaurant of the future to Denver and, specifically, to my neighborhood in Littleton,” says VP of Marketing Devin Handler. “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 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.”
