Garbanzo marks its fifth birthday with five days of specials, including free falafel balls
Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, the homegrown healthy Mediterranean chain, will celebrate its fifth birthday by offering Colorado customers five days of deep discounts -- beginning on Saturday, January 26 -- on some of its popular items, including an entire day of free falafel balls. And Garbanzo is also treating itself to some aggressive expansion plans from now until 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," says 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. To say we are excited about what is to come in our next five years would be an understatement," he added.
The five-day promotion requires valid coupons each day, available via the company's email club, Facebook and Twitter pages beginning today. Here's the goods on the goods: January 26, five free falafel; January 27, five-cent Garbanzo Deal (side and drink add on); January 28, $5 entrees (excludes Kabobs and Salmon Platter); January 29, five-cent soft drinks; January 30, five times the VIB card loyalty points.
Garbanzo's started in 2008 in Greenwood Village and now has fifteen company-owned locations with two stores set to open in the D.C./Baltimore area in February and March. New locations are also planned in Orange County, California, northern New Jersey and Edmond, Oklahoma, between March and May. Franchisees are continuing to sign on and the company anticipates doubling its current size by the beginning of 2014.
"Our past and future accomplishments are of course due to our dedicated 'Bean Team' and loyal guests," continues Mor. "Without them, none of this would be possible. And I thank them every day for helping us reach our nationwide potential."
