Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, a Colorado-based fast casual restaurant concept, is marking its fifth birthday Jan. 28. To celebrate five years of falafel, Garbanzo is holding five days of special birthday offers for its Colorado guests Jan. 26 through Jan. 30, including:
- Jan. 26: Five free falafel
- Jan. 27: 5 cent Garbanzo Deal (side and drink add on)
- Jan. 28: $5 entrees (excludes Kabobs and Salmon Platter)
- Jan. 29: 5 cent soft drinks and
- Jan. 30: Five times the VIB card loyalty points
Guests can obtain birthday offers via the company's email club or Facebook and Twitter pages Jan. 24.
Along with commemorating its fifth birthday, Garbanzo is also recognizing its path to this landmark year and the expansion plans it has in place.
After opening its first location Jan. 28, 2008, in Greenwood Village, Colo., Garbanzo has since expanded to 15 Colorado-based, company-owned locations with two stores set to open in the Washington D.C./Baltimore area in February and March 2013. Garbanzo is also regularly welcoming new franchisees to the scene, with franchised locations already open in Oklahoma City, Okla., and San Antonio, Texas, and many more on the docket in 2013. New locations are expected in Orange County, Calif., northern New Jersey and Edmond, Okla., between March and May of this year. Franchisees continue to sign on and the company anticipates doubling its current size by the beginning of 2014.
"It is sometimes hard to believe we are already celebrating our fifth birthday, but when I look back on all we have accomplished I am not surprised by how far we have come," said Alon Mor, Garbanzo founder, president and CEO. "In these past five years we have opened in four major Colorado markets, announced countless franchisees to the Garbanzo family, opened our first franchised locations and set the stage for a second company-owned market."
