A Southend kebab shop is in the running to be named 'most-loved chain’ in Deliveroo’s restaurant awards.

German Doner Kebab, in High Street, is among the names up for the awards. 

The third annual restaurant awards celebrate the best restaurants and grocers available on Deliveroo.

The first round of online voting is now open to the public until midnight on September 27. 

The shortlist and celebrity panel of judges will be revealed in October where Deliveroo will reveal the top six restaurants that have been shortlisted.

Thereafter, voting will re-open for one final chance to vote for the winners, which will be announced online on November 15 during the virtual Deliveroo Restaurant Awards 2021 held on Deliveroo's Instagram and Twitter channels.

Daniel Bunce, German Doner Kebab MD for UK and Europe, said: “We’re delighted to be nominated for Deliveroo’s ‘Most Loved Chain’.

"It is a testament to the hard work of all the members of our GDK family and the great tasting food and quality service they provide every day to our customers.

“The public’s appetite and love for our delicious gourmet kebabs and range of sides appears to be growing as fast as we are, as we continue to forge ahead with our growth plans and shape GDK into becoming one of the forefront brands of the future.

The awards, first launched in 2019, were created to celebrate the best restaurants — and more recently, grocers such as Aldi, Co-op, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Morrisons — available on Deliveroo across the UK and Ireland.
