Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, the leading fast casual Mediterranean franchise concept best known for its preservative-free, nutrient-rich menu, today officially opened the doors of its newest location at Arsenal Yards in Watertown. The new eatery is now welcoming guests at its location at 41 Bond Street, offering a modern twist to Old World cuisine, breaking down the traditional paradigm of the Mediterranean diet.
“Bostonians are loving the delicious, healthy food that Garbanzo offers, and we are very excited to officially open our doors in Watertown today,” said Derek St. George, co-owner of Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh in Watertown and Boston. “Watertown’s Arsenal Yards is a perfect location for us, and we look forward to welcoming residents and visitors alike to experience the “Eat Better – Feel Brighter” movement that Garbanzo is all about.”
Inspired by tradition but not bound by it, Garbanzo’s modern “co-creation” service model inspires diners to let their instincts rule when ordering. Every order is customized to the guest’s liking and diet preferences, with choices from top-quality meats and plant-based proteins to unique carriers like the Mediterranean version of the burrito – the laffa wrap and perfect, pillowy pitas injected with love are baked in-house throughout the day. Designed to help people feel better and ultimately “brighter” on the inside, Garbanzo’s delicious and nutritious menu of raveable and craveable Mediterranean flavors offers something for everyone to taste, savor and enjoy the moment, including those with dietary and lifestyle preferences. Menu items align with paleo, keto, gluten-free and vegan diets.
“An exciting addition to the neighborhood, we are thrilled to officially welcome Garbanzo to Arsenal Yards,” said Kerry Dowling, SVP, Leasing for Wilder. “We’re pleased to have good news to share with our residents and visitors as we continue to add dining and shopping options this year and next, and we know people will love the fresh take on Mediterranean food that Garbanzo offers.”
