German Doner Kebab to expand to the UK this year
In addition, 12 new outlets will open in Dubai by the end of 2014
German Doner Kebab is planning to open its first store in the United Kingdom, in Birmingham, by the end of 2014.
“We are excited with our store in Birmingham, and hope that the diverse community in Northern England takes up to the treat,” said German Doner Kebab CEO Farshad Abbaszadeh.
This follows the company's plans to significantly increase number of outlets by the end of this year in the GCC region. The firm is investing AED 20 million (US $5.44 million) to open 12 new outlets in Dubai before the end of this year, which includes the first store in the UK.
It has opened the first of the 12 at the Al Ghurair Centre. Abbaszadeh said: "We are pleased to announce our presence at one of the oldest, most iconic shopping malls in the country; the Al Ghurair Centre. We have been working hard to cater to the growing demand from our customers, and the Al Ghurair outlet represents that."
Additionally, German Doner Kebab will open shop at the Global Village in November, which will be located at the main entrance. “The Global Village is an amazing place to be, and is truly a melting pot of the World’s popular cultures. We pride ourselves with authenticity, and that resonates with the theme of Global Village perfectly,” added Abbaszadeh.
German Doner Kebab is already present across nine locations in the UAE, and the 10 new outlets will be located in Al Barsha, Burjuman Centre, Deira (next to Deira City Centre), Dragon Mart, Dubai Mall, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Dubai Sports City, JBR-The Walk, Jumeirah road, and Tecom.
