Fast-casual concept to support National Sports Center for the Disabled with pre-opening fundraiser

DENVER  (  Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, a Denver-based fast-casual restaurant concept featuring fresh, healthy Mediterranean cuisine, today announced the grand opening of its newest location in Denver’s University Hills area. The 11th Garbanzo restaurant will open Wednesday, September 1, and is located at 2466 South Colorado Blvd., Denver, CO 80222. Store hours are 10:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. daily.
The new Garbanzo restaurant joins nine other Denver-metro locations in Highlands, Greenwood Village, Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Park Meadows, Highlands Ranch and Glendale, as well as one in Colorado Springs in the Broadmoor Towne Center.
Committed to community involvement, Garbanzo is partnering with the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) for a pre-opening fundraising event Tuesday, August 31 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the University Hills restaurant. A $5.00 donation is recommended, and all donation proceeds will be given to the NSCD (, a Denver-headquartered nonprofit that provides recreation opportunities for people living with physical, emotional, psychological and behavioral challenges.
“We are very happy to now provide our fresh, healthy and authentic Mediterranean cuisine to the University Hills community,” says Alon Mor, Garbanzo founder. “Denver as a whole has taken to Garbanzo extremely quickly, and this area has always been a big supporter. They seem just as excited to have us in their neighborhood as we are to be there.”
“Along with the excitement of opening a new restaurant, we are extremely pleased to support the National Sports Center for the Disabled,” explains Mor. “This exceptional organization helps change the lives of citizens in Colorado and nationwide living with various disabilities, and we are thrilled to be a part of their efforts.”
