Join the GARBANZO movement and help show the world how delicious nutritious can be.
Open for lunch through dinner, Garbanzo offers guests the opportunity to dine-in or take away meals in addition to off-premise platforms including online ordering, restaurant delivery, third party delivery (GrubHub, Uber Eats, Door Dash) and catering for office meetings, in-home gatherings or special events.
The concept is versatile in accommodating various types of real estate, from end cap and in-line restaurants in strip centers, free-standing units, food courts, to transportation centers, ground floor sites in major office buildings, and street-side locations with high pedestrian traffic. A prototypical Garbanzo restaurant will measure 1,600-2,000 square feet in 2021. Some Garbanzo locations are owned and operated by the franchisor, but most are franchised, ranging from one-store operators to multi-unit franchisees.
In addition to incorporating its Eat Better - Feel Brighter brand positioning that appeals to its external stakeholders (e.g., guests and communities), the Garbanzo Mission also includes the Power of "WOW!" which serves as a filter to help guide the priorities of its internal stakeholders (e.g., team members and franchise partners).
