German Doner Kebab Named Best UAE Franchise Brand

International franchiser German Doner Kebab has won at the 2014 MENAFA Excellence Award with Best UAE Franchise Brand, at a ceremony organised by MENAFA.

Farshad Abbaszadeh, CEO, German Doner Kebab said: “This is a moment of pride for German Doner Kebab. Not just for the ones receiving the award but for every single person who tirelessly works for the brand. We have followed an aggressive expansion plan, with a dedicated franchising model backing it. The award represents our hard-work and immaculate planning.”

Doner Kebab opened its first store in Berlin in 1989 and currently operates in more than 14 countries, with over 300 employees. The firm operates across the GCC region including Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Pakistan, India and the UK.

Abbaszadeh added: “It (franchising and expansion) has only just begun for us. Now, we are confident of our work, and will increase our efforts to spread the German Doner Kebab franchise. Open minded economic reforms means UAE has a strong relation with franchising models. For us to stand head and shoulders above our competitors is overwhelming.”
