A kebab shop in East Lancashire that has been open for 20 years has been named among the best in the country after being shortlisted for a national award.
It is the only kebab shop in Lancashire to have made the shortlist.
The business, best known for its kebab deals, calzones, wraps and beyond, has been nominated for best kebab delivery shop on JustEat.
Ismail Aydin has been the business director since 2002 and has thanked customers for supporting the business in the last 20 years.
He said: “This is amazing news, we truly have our customers to thank. Without them we would be nothing.
“We have being going for 20 years now and have maintained the same high level of quality throughout those years.
“This award has boosted our morale and we hope it boosts business even further too.
“It feels great to have been the only Lancashire business to feature on the list. Now we will plough on and continue to do our best.”
Turkish Best Kebab will now compete with businesses across the UK, when the final takes place in February 2023.
The awards, run in association with Just Eat and supported by the Kebab Alliance, the sector’s trade body, are in their 11th year and this year have attracted record breaking numbers of entries.
They recognise and champion the efforts of local kebab takeaways and restaurants across the UK.
Ibrahim Dogus, founder of the British Kebab Awards and Director of the recently formed Kebab Alliance, said: “Kebab eateries are a key part of the local community and it’s great to see so many entries at the end of a year that has tested every business operating in the hospitality sector.
“Getting to the shortlist is a real achievement given the competition across the country and all outlets should be rightly proud. We wish all finalists the best of luck.”
