German Doner Kebab (GDK) has opened their first motorway service outlet at Baldock Services on the A1(M) in Hertfordshire.

The new eatery, which opened on Monday, December 11, is offering its brand new breakfast menu alongside their traditional kebabs.

The breakfast menu is only being trialled in Baldock and at one location in London, and offers items such as a doner egg brioche, a 'big breakfast wrap', a doner panini, and hash browns.

According to a GDK spokesperson, the new site has created 30 jobs in the local area. GDK has been growing rapidly in the past few years, with more than 130 restaurants in the UK.

Simon Wallis, CEO of GDK, said: “GDK has been revolutionising the kebab across the UK and it is a huge moment for the brand to now make our game-changing kebabs available at breakfast. 

“At GDK, we are on a mission to bring the kebab out of the shadows and reverse the stereotypical associations the great British public have with this product.


"I can think of no bigger statement that demonstrates our confidence that we can do this than the launch of our new breakfast range - the doner egg brioche and the big breakfast wrap are a whole new taste experience for breakfast, who would have thought it…a kebab for breakfast?! 

“It’s hugely exciting to open our first motorway services concept as we continue on our journey of reaching more consumers throughout the country, demonstrating the flexibility of both our product and our restaurant format,” he added. 

In addition to dining-in at GDK, customers can also takeaway, click and collect, or have it delivered to their door.
