German Doner Kebab to spend over £6 million for UK expansion

The fast casual chain says it is earning over £1 million in weekly sales.

Scotland-headquartered German Doner Kebab announced its major growth plans for the UK, eyeing to open a new restaurant every two weeks during the rest of 2019.

The expansion will see an investment of over £6 million and is expected to create 200 jobs in the region.

With weekly sales now hitting over £1 million, the fast-casual brand is set to open a further 14 new stores by the end of the year in key regional locations such as Preston, Oldham, Bradford, Northampton, Walsall, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

“Our new upcoming outlets will give us further key strategic locations to reach even more consumers whilst also creating significant job opportunities,” GDK CEO Imran Sayeed said. “We have developed a strong growth pipeline with some of the UK’s most established franchise entrepreneurs and our focus will be to work closely with them to identify new sites.”

The news follows GDK’s earlier announcement it will expand across Scotland.

The company currently operates stores in the UK, Sweden, Dubai, Abu-Dhabi, Oman and Bahrain.
