A chain of ‘gourmet’ kebab houses founded in Berlin has revealed it plans to open five branches in Newcastle.
German Doner Kebab is one of the UK’s fastest growing food-on-the-go businesses, with 33 outlets opened in the past two-years.
It specialises in premium ‘gourmet kebabs’ which are ‘healthy and nutritionally balanced’.
Now, German Doner Kebab has revealed it plans to open five branches in Newcastle, with the first one set to start serving in 2020.
The business is searching for properties and is in discussion with landlords, a spokesperson told ChronicleLive.
German Doner Kebab launched in Berlin in 1989. It says the business places an emphasis on quality ingredients, with beef and chicken fillets imported from Germany – where doner kebabs are hugely popular thanks in part to the country’s huge Turkish population – combined with local vegetables, which are prepared daily along with ‘Doner Kebab’ bread.
German Doner Kebab says its methods are ‘totally different’ to those used by other kebab houses.
“The result is a nutritionally sound gourmet food experience that contains virtually no preservatives or additives and can be consumed day or night,” the business says.
Weekly sales total £1m, with branches in cities including Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Cardiff, as well as Sweden, Dubai, Abu-Dhabi, Oman and Bahrain.
GDK CEO Imran Sayeed said: “We are excited to be announcing major expansion plans for the UK as we bring the GDK fast casual experience to even more consumers throughout the country.
“Our idea of bringing a gourmet kebab that is healthy and nutritionally balanced has been a massive hit with UK consumers, and this has been reflected in the huge growth we have already achieved in the past two years.
“Our new upcoming outlets will give us further key strategic locations to reach even more consumers whilst also creating significant job opportunities.
