There are also a few grab-and-go items, including fruit cups, Greek yogurt parfaits and oatmeal. Garbanzo's newest location also showcases a fresh interior look, with more natural wood and a brighter, more modern order counter. "This is an opportunity that not all Colorado businesses get," says Bob Bafundo, vice president of company and franchise operations, "and we are thrilled to be able to call the 16th Street Mall home."
Garbanzo now has 28 franchises and corporate-owned locations in eight states. The newest Denver spot is only the second in the nation to serve breakfast; the location in the Atlanta airport introduced it last year.
