Denver-based Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, a new restaurant group offering Mediterranean cuisine, today announced the grand opening of its fast-casual restaurant in Highlands Square. The store is located at 3453 W. 32nd Avenue in Denver, and is open Sunday-Thursday from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

This is the eighth Garbanzo to open in Colorado, joining locations in Greenwood Village, Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Park Meadows, Highlands Ranch, and Glendale.

“Garbanzo’s mission is to bring the fresh tastes of the Mediterranean to our guests by using top quality ingredients in made-from-scratch recipes,” says Alon Mor, Garbanzo’s founder. “Expanding into the Highlands, an area rich with Denver history, charm, and distinctive retail opportunities, helps us further establish our roots in the area and enables those in the neighborhood to enjoy our unique and fresh Mediterranean-style food.”

On opening day, Garbanzo guests can participate in several fun activities and receive giveaways including:

·Bean toss – Participants may win a free Garbanzo lunch.

·Mystery gift cards – The first 100 guests receive a gift card with a chance to win up to $50.

·Live music – Colorado native Henry Howard will perform.

Garbanzo offers guests a variety of healthy, high-quality Mediterranean items with an emphasis on flavor, freshness, and authenticity. Guests have the ability to customize every meal with items such as pita, laffas, falafel, shwarma, hummus, seasoned rice, sauces, and dressings. All Garbanzo salads and sauces are prepared on-site daily, and the pitas are baked fresh on-site in every store. The menu features simple and easy definitions and descriptions of each item in an effort to make guests feel comfortable with trying food that may be new to them.
