German Doner Kebab diner to open in Hull in November

The German Doner Kebab diner taking shape in Jameson Street, Hull, will open in November, it has been confirmed.

The opening of the city centre restaurant will create thirty new jobs.

The chain is investing £500,000 to transform two shop units previously occupied by a William Hill betting shop and a Shoe Zone store into German Doner Kebab’s first outlet in Hull.

A spokeswoman for the kebab chain said: “The Hull restaurant is set to open mid to late November, an exact date and additional information will be confirmed nearer the time.”

German Doner Kebab was founded in Germany in 1989 but launched in the UK in 2016 by United Brands under a franchise model.

The Hull diner is one of 47 new restaurants planned to be opened by the chain in the UK before the year’s end.

Chief executive Imran Sayeed spoke earlier in the year about the chain’s expansion plans:

He said: “We have been extremely agile during the pandemic and there continues to be a huge demand for our game-changing kebabs.

“It is therefore very exciting to be announcing these latest growth plans for the next 12 months as we build on the great momentum we delivered during 2020.

“Our plans will almost double our portfolio and create in the region of 1,800 jobs as we continue to disrupt the market space and maintain our mission of building the fast-casual brand of the future.”

The conversion work in Jameson Street is being carried out by the Hull-based construction and building maintenance firm, Soper Group.
