Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, the leading fast casual Mediterranean franchise concept best known for its preservative-free, nutrient-rich menu, announced today an aggressive franchise growth initiative to increase its presence across the United States. Planning to add 50 new locations to the brand’s development pipeline annually, expansion will focus on territories from the Rocky Mountain states to the Midwest and down south through Texas.
The concept has put itself on an impressive growth trajectory that has positioned the brand for strategic expansion this year and for years to come. GARBANZO recently completed two major franchising deals that stand to spark growth in key markets — a five-store deal for the Boston area, and a 25-plus location area development agreement that covers all of Indiana and Kentucky, as well as Southwest Ohio, primarily in the Cincinnati area.
Notably, GARBANZO placed in the top-5 of FastCasual’s 2019 “Top 100 Movers & Shakers” list, a prestigious annual ranking honoring the brands and executives leading the restaurant industry through creativity, hard work and progressiveness. The brand has disrupted the fast-casual Mediterranean segment with fresh, made-from-scratch ingredients that make customers feel good, not guilty.
As the brand continues to expand into key markets, GARBANZO is actively seeking qualified multi-unit owners looking to add an exciting health-forward fast casual concept to their portfolios.
