German Doner Kebab opens Toronto restaurant

The fast casual chain eyes 100 new restaurants in Canada over the next ten years.

German Doner Kebab (GDK) announced the opening of a new restaurant in Toronto on 3 August, the chain’s third site in Canada.

The restaurant at 246 Queen St will have a capacity of 40 seats and will create 30 new jobs.

The opening is part of the business’ plan to open 100 new restaurants in Canada over the next ten years. Aside from the new flagship site, GDK already has restaurants in Ottawa and Surrey that were launched last year.
