Award-winning takeaway shop, I am Doner is seeking the help of the public to open its second-ever takeaway - and it's in Harrogate.

Founded by chef Paul Baron, who has previously worked in Michelin-starred kitchens, the shop aims to create a kebab which people can be proud of loving.


The company's first shop in Headingley, which opened in May 2016, gained national recognition in its first year as the overall winner of the National Kebab Awards and was also recognizsd in Parliament just a few weeks ago as part of its initiative to go plastic-free with its packaging.


Founder Paul Baron, said: “We are so excited to be heading to Harrogate. We’ve had so much love for what we do here in Headingley and just know we’ll have an equal amount of support there.


"As a small business it’s not easy moving from one site to two, but we feel like we’ve learnt a lot from our mistakes here, so we are starting in a much better place for this opening.
"We are asking our fans from Headingley and potential customers in Harrogate to support us by pre-purchasing kebabs, helping us make this dream a reality and to get us open.”


The business has secured a new site on Station Parade in Harrogate and is working towards an opening date in the late summer.

Harrogate pub legend's national honour


They have launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help fund the expansion, where fans and locals can show their support by buying vouchers and kebabs ahead of the opening, as well as taking advantage of some other interesting rewards like a Doner Kebab Safari to Berlin with Baron or buy a year’s worth of kebabs.
