Ed's Easy Diner Will Reopen In Debenhams Two Months After It Closed
Burger fans can rejoice as a retro-themed eatery is set to reopen its doors in Manchester - little more than two months after they were meant to have closed, for good.
Ed's Easy Diner was axed last year when the venue - situated in Debenhams on Market Street - was left out of a deal for the chain.
Back in October, the Boparan Restaurant group snapped up 33 branches across the UK, but neglected to take on the Manchester branch.
Now, food management group SSP has stepped into the breach, and will be reopening the hopping diner imminently.
The 1950s themed venues are noted for their mini jukeboxes and red vinyl seats that look like something from Grease.
They're also renowned for burgers and hot dogs - quintessential American diner fare - and their 'Atomic' fries - smothered with chilli, jalapeño jelly, sour cream and Cheddar cheese, and served with guacamole on the side.
SSP announced in September that it would be opening 10 new restaurants in travel hub locations by 2020, Big Hospitality reported.
And now the Manchester branch will be part of the family.
Sam Wignell, Brand Director of Ed’s Easy Diner, told the Manchester Evening News: "We are delighted however that through our franchise partner that Ed’s Easy Diner at Debenhams, Manchester has now re-opened.”
Lovin Manchester has approached SSP for a comment.
