This week, we are celebrating our client and growing franchise brand German Doner Kebab (GDK) opening their 33rd store in the UK! The store opened in the iconic old Odeon Cinema building on Renfield Street in the city centre, a prominent position on the city’s busy streets.
The brand began its expansion into the UK in 2016 and has grown rapidly, with many of the country’s most experienced multi-site franchisees coming on board. This has been due to its appealing and slick franchise model. It’s a very exciting time for the brand as it is soon opening in Scotland’s capital city too, located on Lothian Road in Edinburgh. In total, GDK now have more than 60 stores thriving in Europe and the Middle East. The brand operates in UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah), Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Pakistan, Sweden, UK and has already began its expansion into the USA and Canada.
With a strong modern brand and the promotion of healthy, fresh, nutritious ingredients that appeals to a broad market, GDK's unique kebab concept is like nothing you have ever experienced before. Food trends can come and go, but there is no denying that the global shift towards finding an artisanal experience that doesn’t cost the earth in a street food or food to go format rather than a stuffy restaurant, is here to stay. While dozens of Gourmet Burger brands fight it out to be No.1 in their sector, GDK is the undoubted leader in the kebab market.
German Doner Kebab is a completely unique and appealing franchise model due to its simple supply chain, operational excellence and both set up and running processes are extremely straightforward. We have a highly experienced team to guide you through your training, store opening and ongoing development, not to mention some incredible supplier relationships bringing you the very best in everything from your ingredients and shop fit out, to digital marketing and social media support.
