About/Contact Us - History
As a child growing up along the Mediterranean Sea, I remember looking out the window on the weekends and smelling scents of the water and the spices filling the air from the food on the streets.
Nothing was better than walking along the boardwalk of the beach and buying the amazing, fresh spices the farmers had gathered. We would rush back to my grandma's house to combine those spices with the vegetables we bought at the farmers market to make wonderful falafel and salads. We would eat these delicious meals along with the fresh baked pita my grandma had made.
"While I can't bring the Mediterranean Sea here, I can bring you the spices, food, and freshness that remind me of my home." - Alon Mor
Alon Mor, a native of the Mediterranean region and a veteran of over 20 years experience in owning and running restaurants, had a vision to bring quality Mediterranean-style food to the US in a fast-casual environment.
At Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, pitas are made from scratch and baked on site throughout the day. Salads and sauces are made from fresh, whole vegetables and prepared each morning. And all menu offerings are made from top quality, natural ingredients using no transfat oils. From the inception of the idea, the company's goal has been to focus on fresh, healthy, quality foods using original, unique recipes. Garbanzo is thrilled to see customers become regular guests because of the COMMITMENT TO QUALITY.
Garbanzo is extremely proud of the quality of our products and is committed to providing excellent and friendly service!
