Döner Shack plans 150 UK sites in next five years
Halal fast casual kebab concept Döner Shack has appointed a new global franchise director to develop its UK expansion of 150 sites over the next five years.
Former UK and international franchise director for Chaiiwala, Nil Naik, will be working with co-founder Sanjeev Sanghera and chief executive Suj Legha to help build up the brand.
With over 20 years of franchise development experience, Naik helped Chaiiwala grow its UK franchise network to more than 50 stores and identified prospects in over 235 locations worldwide.
Having worked with other high-performing franchise brands like Papa John’s Pizza and Domino’s Pizza, he will also be working to establish a presence in N. America, Europe and the Middle East.
“Nil is a welcome addition to our management team, and with his wealth of franchise and sales experience, he will be a huge asset to the brand as we look to deliver the Döner Shack experience across the world,” said Sanghera.
Having first opened in Leeds in 2019, a further two sites were launched by Döner Shack in Manchester and Leicester, with Glasgow and London due to launch in the autumn.
