German Doner Kebab confirm plans to continue with global expansion



German Doner Kebab has announced it will continue with its global growth plans during 2021 expanding into new ‘strategic’ regions.

The Glasgow-based chain recently opened its first location in the US at American Dream Mall in New Jersey and its third restaurant in Canada in Downtown Toronto.

The new restaurant in Toronto opened its doors in August following the launch of its first two restaurants in Ottawa and Surrey last year.

Plans are now in place to open 100 new restaurants in Canada over the next ten years. Ten restaurants are now planned across New York, New Jersey and Houston Texas in 2022.

The brand is also set to open its first restaurant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in November.

The Ajlan Bin Ajlan Group has been signed-up as the master franchisee in Saudi Arabia, with a development agreement of 100 restaurants over the next five years.

The regional plans are running in parallel with ambitious growth plans in the UK, with 47 new restaurants scheduled to open by the end of 2021.

The brand has grown at great pace in the UK, Sweden and Middle East and now rapidly expanding in the USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia and across other key locations in Europe, with more than 80 restaurants worldwide.

Imran Sayeed, chief executive at German Doner Kebab, said: “2021 is now proving to be a landmark year in our story as we expand our footprint and bring the German Doner Kebab experience to more consumers in the UK and across defined international growth regions.

“The global demand reflects our position as one of the world’s most exciting fast-casual brands and we are excited to have opened our first restaurant in the US and bringing momentum to our growth strategy in Saudi Arabia.

“We have developed strong franchise relationships to meet our ambitions and we are working closely with them to invest in localised global regions and create sustainable employment as we maintain our mission of building the fast-casual brand of the future.”
