to the masses.
İskender döner, a dish of thinly cut
grilled meat served with hot tomato
sauce and yogurt over pita bread, is a
Turkish specialty. Having grown up in
families where dining out was not an
option, entrepreneurs Feridun Tunçer
and Levent Yılmaz decided to found
Baydöner ("Mr. Döner"), a restaurant
chain that serves high-quality iskender
döner at fast-food prices.
With its delicious döner recipe,
affordable prices, and rigorous quality standards, Baydöner has been
attracting waves of Turkish consumers.
Since the launch of the first Baydöner
location in 2007, the company has
expanded to operate 70 restaurants,
including 17 franchises, across 34
cities in Turkey. In the next five years,
Feridun and Levent plan to leverage
their efficient operations to reach 200
restaurants across Turkey and MENA.
