World’s First Doner Kebab Franchise Success Continues In Dubai

Following the launch of the world’s first real Doner Kebab franchise in the prestigious Dubai Marina View Towers, the Doner Kebab brand continues to go from strength to strength with the securing of its second store in Dubai – Marina.

A company spokesman said ‘In response to the increasing popularity of our flagship store in Jumeirah Lake Towers, we are delighted to announce the opening of a second Doner Kebab outlet in Dubai. Our authentic kebabs are big on flavour and size which keeps our customers coming back for more’.

In contrast to the traditional unhealthy image of kebabs, Doner Kebab offers a gourmet food experience free from additives and preservatives.

The company’s unique ‘fusion’ concept uses only 100% veal and pure chicken fillets (100% Halal) together with locally produced fresh vegetables prepared on a daily basis and special ‘Doner Kebab’ bread. Its unmatched flavour is derived using a combination of original Doner meat and chicken blended with three original sauces. The recipes for both the spices and sauces remain a closely guarded company secret.

The company is now poised to fulfil its ambitious expansion plans throughout the GCC, Unites Kingdom, Sweden, Pakistan and beyond.

The spokesperson continued ‘Such has been the overwhelming demand for our exclusive business offer that we now have agreements in place for in excess of 200 store openings across the GCC and Pakistan. We will be announcing details of our master licence agreements in the near future’.

All Doner Kebab stores have the support of the world’s largest Doner Kebab production operation “Kaplan Doner” based in Germany together with its unrivalled industry knowledge acquired through decades of experience. Since the launch of the brand in Berlin in 1989, Doner Kebab has been committed to perfecting its unique blend of traditional spices and innovative cooking processes that go into producing its healthy alternative Doner Kebabs.

Further information on Doner Kebab is available on www.donerkebab.ae and from World Franchise Associates who have exclusive rights for the marketing of this global brand.

Hollywood Stars Enjoy Swag Bag Heaven at 2010 Golden Globe Awards

Award trophies are nice, but what do big name movie stars like Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Penélope Cruz and Hollywood party-goers really crave besides a little extra attention?

How about those swanky loot bags loaded up with ultra-premium goodies handed out at different venues held before the 67th Golden Globe ceremonies happening this Sunday in Beverly Hills, California.

This year a number of Canadians representing a variety of premium lifestyle products will be on hand to showcase their wares during ceremonies leading to the Awards night, including a reception sponsored by the Canadian Consulate.

One of the trophy products included in the swag bag extravaganza is riceworks®, the Gourmet Brown Rice Crisp from Vancouver-based Snack Alliance Inc. The riceworks® snack is one of the carefully chosen premium Canadian products tucked away in the posh swag bags that award winners, nominees and select party-goers receive when they drop by the Oh Canada gift lounge at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel prior to the Sunday show.

“Everybody loves the swag bag hoopla, and it’s a fabulous way to showcase our gourmet products,” says Tricia Ryan, Director of Marketing for riceworks®, and leading promoter for the brand. “We’re joining other premium products like Heather Stewart’s famous Lilyfield Cakes and Jamie Macfarlane’s Northern Ice Vidal Icewine as prime examples of what Canada brings to the world’s table. We’re in good company.”

A Perfect “Oh Canada” Launch Party
A number of nominated Canadian actors and film directors including Christopher Plummer and Jason Reitman have been invited to attend the Canadian Consulate sponsored event where riceworks® will be touted and tasted.

For Ms. Ryan, the chance to meet and schmooze some big names affords her the opportunity to also promote “Show Us Your Goodness,” a riceworks®-sponsored social campaign that invites consumers to nominate and vote online for the charitable program they believe has gone the extra mile to “serve the greater good.” “Not only will we have a chance to show off our products, we’ll have a chance to spread the good word for our charity program,” says Ms. Ryan.

Contest details are available at www.showusyourgoodness.com.

Absolutely THE Perfect Hostess Gifts.

Old World Gourmet also received First Place in the Best Snack Category for their Simply SINsational Trail Mix.

This item is a great basket inclusion, perfect for Father’s Day, and can even be assembled in your favorite “GAME DAY” colors! This is simply The Best Snack in town!

Old World Gourmet has been in the business of selling frozen wine chillers for 6 years. Dan and Deanna Sullivan attribute the success of their company to the grace of God, commitment to succeed, and always exceeding our customer’s expectations. “Success for us is truly measured by our customer’s complete satisfaction.” Deanna states.

Old World Gourmet actually made its debut on September 11, 2001… (Yes that date is correct). Dan reflected back to the day the business started, “We were in Philadelphia at the National Candy Show. Certainly we will never be able to forget that day.”

Old World Gourmet will be celebrating their 6th year in business on September 11, 2007. “Our parent company “Nuts for You” started in 1996 in Florida with two products, cinnamon and sugar glazed nuts and my grandmother’s “church punch” which later became our signature “Old World Cider”. Deanna reminisced By providing a high quality line of products and designing their own packaging and marketing strategies, It is no wonder that within the last five (5) years Old World Gourmet has reached a regular customer base just over 4000. They manufacture all of their products from the actual item to the custom bags that they go into. All are hand-crafted and hand assembled one bag at a time. Merchants who have developed a working relationship with Old World Gourmet are able to take advantage of their private labeling for resellers. If there is a frozen wine cooler on the market, it likely got its start at Old World Gourmet.

Old World Gourmet has been featured in The Home Business Magazine which highlights “self-made” business individuals. Some of their products such as our Vineyard Frost and their Margarita have been featured in magazines such as Rave Reviews and Country Business. Their products can be found in locations such at The Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Tampa Airport, Orlando Airport, Hallmarks, Theme parks, Boutiques, Hospital gift shops, and hundreds of retail shops.

Excitedly Deanna announces the new line of products that just hit the market. “Our Wine @ Five Collections(TM) of frozen wine chillers is a must! The hottest NEW Frozen Wine Drinks are here. Vineyard Frost, a refreshingly different way to cool down on a hot summer day! Just add our Vineyard Frost, your favorite wine, and mix, freeze and enjoy! No blender or ice needed. We are also the home of the “BITCH BAG” Collection of frozen Wine Mixes. That’s right, the “BITCH BAG” collection! THE BITCH IS BACK and she is at Old World Gourmet! Hot off the production line from Old World Gourmet, their new “Bitch Bag Collection” is breaking record sales. The powdered mix collection consists of all the favorites, “Wine-E-Bitch”, “Bitch-ARita”, “Cosmo Bitch”, “Lemon Drop Bitch” and “Bitchy Colada”.

For a delightful and unique wine tasting party, mix with your favorite wine, freeze about 3 hours, wire whisk and instantly become the best host/hostess in town! A frozen wine way ahead of its time!
