German Doner Kebab said it has signed up a host of new franchise partners in recent months, which will bring in the region of 30 new units to its development pipeline.

Jon Cullen, the chain’s global group franchise director, revealed that the recent agreements include partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise partners “who boast a wealth of experience” with internationally renowned brands, including KFC, Starbucks and McDonalds.

“The interest and developments in recent months reflects our position as one of the world’s most exciting fast-casual brands,” he said. “We have been building a number of new partnerships with experienced franchise investors during this time and plans are well on their way to open up a new region in the Middle East.”

“We will now work closely with our new partners to explore development opportunities across the globe as we take the German Doner Kebab experience to new regions and embark on an exciting period of new growth,” he added.
