It would appear that London’s original US diner chain, Ed’s Easy Diner, has got big plans to bring its style of ’50s kitsch to the length and breadth of the country… the UK, that is. The group, which currently has five sites London and another 26 in England and Wales, has secured a new £14 million debt facility in hopes of opening up to 20 more restaurants.
So far seven openings have been confirmed, including Ed’s first Scottish diners in Fort Kinnaird in Edinburgh and the St Enoch Centre in Glasgow, with 12-13 more restaurants planned. The group hopes to have 50 outposts in total before it is sold to a private equity business, Ed’s chairman Stephen Greene told the Times.
