Fast food chain German Doner Kebab is opening locations across Canada

Popular Scottish-headquartered fast-casual food chain German Doner Kebab has announced plans for a major expansion, and that includes several locations across Canada.  

The company currently has restaurants scattered all over Europe and the Middle East, and now they're bringing their popular food to cities across North America.

One of the new Canadian locations is set to open in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in June 2020, and the company also has plans to open stores in both Ottawa and Vancouver. 

Expansion plans also include several American locations.

"We are extremely excited to press ahead with our significant growth plans that will allow the brand to develop a footprint of strategic restaurant locations throughout North America," said Nigel Belton, Managing Director for GDK North America, in a press release.

"We have already signed up five franchisees with a development pipeline of 75 stores."

According to the release, GDK has opened 38 restaurants in the United Kingdom in just two years, and they have a development pipeline of 350 franchise units in place over the next seven years.

Menu items at the popular chain include a wide range of healthy kebabs and several sides such as flaming fries, doner nachos and doner spring rolls.

"First impressions are vital," Belton said, "and we will stop at nothing to ensure GDK North America quickly becomes the household name that is already loved by our loyal legion of customers throughout Europe and the Middle East."
