At Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, every day is Gyro Day, but this Friday is the official holiday for the beloved dish. So, of course, the leading brand for fresh Mediterranean cuisine is celebrating in a big way.

On National Gyro Day, September 1, the restaurant renowned for its focus on delicious and nutritious dishes, protein-rich sides and fresh-baked pita is inviting fans to enjoy a free classic gyro pita with the purchase of any side and any drink.

“This classic dish of the Mediterranean is quietly becoming a new staple of Americans’ diets and we are proud to be a big part of that movement,” says James Park, CEO of Denver-based Garbanzo. “We use the freshest, simplest ingredients derived from Old World recipes, which explains why our gyros are so ridiculously delicious. There’s no better place to celebrate National Gyro Day than Garbanzo!”

With the purchase of any of Garbanzo’s seven tasty sides and a drink, guests will receive a FREE classic gyro pita.  Filled with hand-carved roasted gyro meat, tomato cucumber salad, romaine lettuce, red onions and feta cheese. Then top it all off with one of Garbanzo’s scratch-made sauces—like traditional gyro tzatziki yogurt sauce. 

Garbanzo is doubling down on its National Gyro Day celebration by giving away Free Garbanzo for a Year-O to one lucky fan. For your chance to win, post a picture of your gyro on Instagram using the hashtag #GarbanzoGyro.

“We like to think of the gyro as Mediterranean comfort food, so if you’re looking for a uniquely delicious and nutritious experience, Garbanzo is the place for you,” says Park. “Our menu is designed to teach people how easy it is to eat healthy without sacrificing flavor or convenience. It’s hard to go cold turkey on fast food, but it’s pretty easy to trade a taco for a gyro.”

Garbanzo is making fresh Mediterranean cuisine a mainstream favorite across the United States. Its authentic, nutrient-rich dishes originated centuries ago are served with a new twist, but without compromise. Every order is customized to the guest’s liking, from juicy, high-quality meats and salads made from scratch to gyros, wraps and pita baked fresh all day. Garbanzo is dedicated to satisfying every palate – including vegetarian and gluten-free diners—and believes that “simple tastes better.”

Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh is headquartered in Colorado with 23 locations nationwide.
