Warning - A Doner Kebab
shortage is looming!
experts are predicting a Kebab shortage this Bank Holiday, as
Doner mad Brits, flock to get their favourite takeaway meals. As
the UK prepares to enjoy the last Bank Holiday of the 2020
summer, the iconic takeout Kebab is at the forefront of people's
minds, and Bank Holiday Monday is set to become Kebab Holiday
Monday, with a huge upsurge in Kebab sales on that day every
Doner Kebabs are 1 of the most ordered takeaway foods on Bank
Holiday Monday, according to data from food delivery experts
Foodhub. The takeaway food app and online takeaway delivery
platform is predicting a nationwide shortage of Kebabs as
customer's flock to fill their craving with the tasty takeaway
treat. In 2019 Kebab sales doubled on Bank Holiday and, if that
pattern is also playing out in 2020, with many takeaway
restaurants may run out of Doner meat well before the day is
over. And Kebabs aren't the only popular takeaway food over the
Bank Holiday. While Fish 'n' Chips orders is always a hugely
popular option, it seems the traditional British dish has been
taken over on Bank Holiday Monday, by the humble curry.
Foodhub sales data reveals
that alongside Kebabs, Indian takeaways double in demand during
Bank Holiday and makes up a staggering 14% of all overall orders
However, it seems customers don't have a sweet tooth when
feasting on the national Holiday, as dessert orders see a dip in
demand as people favour savoury dishes as their Bank Holiday
treat. Pizza has become the nation's favourite food when it
isn't a Bank Holiday, taking the top spot alongside fish and
chips and fried chicken. Wil Chung, Foodhub spokesperson, said:-
"Bank Holiday Monday is always a busy time for the takeaway
sector, as people sit back and relax after a busy weekend. It's
interesting to see the sales figures and see what dishes our
customers turn to on this national day. As summer is drawing to
a close and the nights turn darker, it's no surprise that people
are choosing to indulge in a Kebab, the original takeaway food."
So what will your Bank Holiday Banquet be?
