Ed's Easy Diner restaurant chain goes into administration
The Ed’s Easy Diner chain has been sold after collapsing into administration – but 26 diners will close immediately.
The diners in Liverpool and Cheshire Oaks will stay open as they were among 33 bought by Giraffe Concepts.
Giraffe says the deal, which will also see it take control of the chain’s head office, has saved 700 jobs.
But the remaining 26 diners, including one in Chester, will close immediately with the loss of 379 jobs.
