A brand new style of restaurant is promising to reinvent the kebab for the British public. No longer will the kebab be considered an unhealthy, greasy, after-pub snack… as it has now undergone a much needed makeover.
German Doner Kebab (GDK), a new fast-food concept in the UK, is an international phenomenon with 45 stores worldwide. It was created in Germany in 1989, with the vision to create classic, authentic and healthy kebabs, combining high quality produce with excellent customer service. A GDK kebab has less than half the calories of a regular kebab, as it only uses 100% lean, succulent, halal meat, along with handmade breads and signature sauces.
Introducing GDK to Kilburn are experienced businessmen Fahad Yusaf and Safwan Adam. Kilburn is situated in the north-west of London, and the new store will be situated on the famous Kilburn High Road, which is renowned for its diverse range of shops, eateries and pubs. This area of London is well known for its multi-cultural population, excellent transport links, and lively community. The Kilburn restaurant is one of the first GDK outlets to open in the UK, with 92 new stores planned to open in the coming years.
Fahad Yusaf explains:
“GDK is a brand new concept in the UK, but is a very successful brand worldwide, particularly in the Middle East. GDK is focused on quality, and is committed to changing people’s perception of the kebab. The fast food market is very competitive, and usually seen as unhealthy, however GDK brings in a new dimension to the kebab market by offering a quality fresh gourmet range which is also healthy… a kebab without the guilt.”
“We chose Kilburn as it is a very busy, multi-cultural borough of London, famed for its lively community and diverse range of eateries. We see it as the perfect location to open our first GDK outlet. In the future we hope to open a cluster of stores around this area so we can introduce the German engineered kebab to as many people as possible.”
