Vegan kebab joint What The Pitta has announced it is opening a fifth store in the U.K.

The award-winning eatery will open its ‘biggest site yet’ in Manchester at the beginning of next year. 

‘Fills us with optimism’

Cem Yildiz is the co-founder of What The Pitta. He said the expansion feels like a ‘huge step forward’ for the company. 

According to Bdaily News, Yildiz said: “The site will be our biggest brick and mortar site yet… To finally open during what we hope is the tail end of this pandemic fills us with optimism for the future. Not just us, but hospitality as a whole.

“Manchester is my favourite city outside of London, with such an incredible food scene. We can’t wait to be a part of that. [We] hope the city welcomes us with open arms ready for their vegan kebabs.”

Award-winning vegan kebabs

Earlier this year, What The Pitta picked up the prize for Best Takeaway in London at the British Kebab Awards

The awards, which are held each year, were founded in 2013. Moreover, they are sponsored by Just Eat and ‘seek to celebrate kebab restaurants across the U.K’.

Yildiz told Plant Based News: “To win at the kebab awards is a huge statement for veganism…

“We were laughed at when we decided to create London’s first exclusively vegan kebab shop just over three years ago… Now, we’ve taken centre stage with our vegan spin on the British classic kebab.”
