GDK Croydon Official Store Launch

Joey Essex made an appearance at GDK Croydon to celebrate the official launch of the store where fans of the TOWIE star and GDK were given a treat!

Joey came down to our Croydon branch on Friday 10th of February and the crowds gathered to grab a kebab and selfie with Mr Essex himself. At GDK, all our meat served is 100% lean meat and lower in saturated fats, which is somewhat fitting with Joey’s diet “no carbs before marbs”! He tucked into one of our signature doner sandwiches and even said that he would travel back to Croydon just to eat from our menu.

We had other entertainment during the day including dancers from Step Up productions who were greeting passers by and with music and balloons filling the air of a particularly wet Croydon. Joey had his dancing shoes on and joined the girls dancing outside the shop, perhaps burning off the kebab he just devoured. He added: “When I arrived it looked like there was a massive party going on, it’s a really good day, everyone’s so excited”.

The store launch was an absolute success and a fantastic way to open our doors to both new and regular customers. We value our customers support and we’d like to thank everyone for coming and making the launch one to remember.

Thank you Croydon Advertiser for excellent coverage of the evening!

Here’s some of our favourite pictures from the launch….
