The company of today traces its start to a day back in 1992 when Dean Thomas and Donna Gallie first tasted Jabies Doner Kebab from a mobile kiosk in Napier. They liked it so much that they now own the company.In early 1993 the couple established their first Jabies Doner Kebab café in Wanganui. The kebabs quickly gained a reputation for wonderful taste, but that wasn’t the only thing that appealed. They are healthy for you too. The New Zealand Heart Foundation has given its tick to Jabies Doner Kebab, which is a huge plus in this day and age. As the general population moves towards healthier, nutritious convenience foods, this product offers a delicious alternative.
