It is estimated that the kebab industry contributes over £1.5 billion annually to the British economy, a fact that many are not aware of. The increasing consumption of kebabs is making them a household food all over Britain. Therefore the first British Kebab Awards has been created to give this well-established industry recognition, and to create awareness of the contribution it has made to our society.
With around 15,000 restaurants, 150,000 employees and a turnover of £1.5billion, the kebab restaurant industry is not only an important part of the UK economy but also of its social fabric.
The inaugural awards ceremony will take place on Monday 21st January 2013 in the Houses of Parliament. It will be a chance to celebrate the champions, innovators and entrepreneurs that contribute to the kebab industry.
Tim said: “Geno’s is a Kendal institution, so I’m delighted to nominate them for a national award. I hope that they go far in the competition and that they get the recognition they deserve!”
