German Doner Kebab (GDK)…already taking the UK fast food industry by storm

German Doner Kebab (GDK) presents the perfect solution to the gap in the market between fast food kebabs and gourmet restaurant kebabs.  Customers can dine in to enjoy our kebabs and experience a healthier and nutritionally balanced approach to traditional kebabs but which taste every bit as good. 

Initially launched in Dubai in 2013 as a franchise, GDK soon had multiple locations opened in the UAE thanks to its appealing franchise model. We now operate over 73 restaurants in UK, Europe and Middle East, and now rapidly expanding in the USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Ireland

Our mission is to be recognised as one of the top fast casual food brands in the world and unquestionably, to be the No.1 for kebabs.

GDK investment opportunity

German Doner Kebab came to the UK in 2016 and has grown rapidly to over 50 restaurants due to the many experienced multi-site franchisees already on board with us and the hugely experienced management team behind the brand.

There are still many opportunities for experienced franchise partners to be part of our journey and so GDK is keen to hear from ambitious, existing food retail operators from the UK and internationally.

In the UK we are looking for investors wishing to manage a multi-unit operation.  Internationally, we will consider the following partner arrangements - Master Franchises, Country Developers, Area Representatives, Multi-site and in some territories, we may consider a Joint Venture.

Investment level:  circa £250k - £300k per store
