SSP adds Ed's Easy Diner to its brand portfolio

Travel caterer SSP, which operates food outlets in locations worldwide, is set to open its first Ed's Easy Diner at London's Liverpool Street Station this month.

The company plans to open a further 10 sites of the retro American-style diner by 2020 in UK stations, airports and visitor attractions.

Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK, said: "Ed's is a much-loved brand that has a truly unique personality and a stand-out style that captures the imagination. It will be the perfect complement to the wide choice of bars, restaurants, cafés and shops that visitors to Liverpool Street will be able to enjoy."

Andrew Guy, CEO of Ed's Easy Diner, added: "We are delighted to be embarking on the expansion of Ed's and our first station opening, working with experienced partners SSP. Dwell time at train stations is certainly increasing and with a daily footfall of 180,000 people, we're confident the Liverpool Street Diner will be a success."

In addition to Ed's Easy Diner, SSP will also open a new Mi Casa Burritos and a Leon restaurant. The company currently operates 12 units in Liverpool Street including M&S Simply Food, Delice de France, the Pasty Shop, Camden Food Co, the Merchant, Whistlestop and Starbucks. SSP opened its first unit at the station in 2000.
