Are you a successful Florida entrepreneur searching for your next great venture? Look no further! Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill has just awarded its first Florida franchise development rights to Garboca LLC. The franchise group will begin opening restaurants in southern Florida toward the end of 2013, with the rights to develop up to 20 locations. Garbanzo has embraced franchising as one of its key growth strategies to build upon their 14 successful company owned restaurants in Colorado.
“We are looking forward to introducing Garbanzo to southern Florida,” says Alon Mor, Garbanzo founder, president and CEO. “An area already familiar with Mediterranean foods and flavors, we have no doubt Garbanzo will quickly become a local favorite.” Garbanzo offers delicious, authentic Mediterranean cuisine that is perfect for today’s health-conscious diners. The trans-fat free menu focuses on quality ingredients, with pitas made from scratch daily, and salads, sauces, and kabobs made fresh daily.
Garbanzo is searching for highly qualified franchisees with successful multi-unit restaurant experience who demonstrate in-depth market knowledge. Candidates must be well funded, with a willingness to commit to a multi-unit development plan. The company is primarily focusing on markets with a general population of 50,000 within a two-mile radius of the unit location and a day population of 10,000 within a one-mile radius. Standard locations are in areas with an average household income of $65,000 plus where 40 percent of the population holds at least a bachelor’s degree.
