East Rutherford, N.J. — German Doner Kebab (GDK), a fast-casual restaurant chain, plans to open 350 restaurants in the United States over the next seven years. The first location will be within American Dream in East Rutherford.

The Glasgow, Scotland-based company specializes in doner kebab, which is a slow-cooked meat often served on a flatbread. GDK operates more than 70 locations in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Dubai, Abu-Dhabi, Oman, and Bahrain. GDK also plans to open locations in Ireland and Saudi Arabia.

New York City-based JAACRES is representing GDK in finding American locations. Joseph Aquino of JAACRES said the company is seeking locations in malls, strip centers and central business districts.

GDK plans to open later this year as part of the American Dream’s grand opening.
