Little Chef puts 19 sites up for let

Roadside restaurant chain Little Chef has put 19 of its sites across the UK on the market.

The move follows a strategic review of the company's estate and includes both closed Little Chef sites as well as former Burger King restaurants on Little Chef sites which continue to trade.

It comes after last month's announcement that Little Chef is to invest in a £30m revamp of its restaurants and plans to expand by more than 55 sites over the next five years.

The sites include eight closed Little Chef restaurants in: Edinburgh; Baldock, Hertfordshire; Hayle, Cornwall; Swavesey, Cambridgeshire; Newmarket; Sheffield; Oldbury, West Midlands; Sedgefield, County Durham.

In addition there are 11 sites located in: Cirencester, Gloucestershire; Stonehouse, near Stroud, Gloucestershire; Mildenhall, Suffolk; Ely, Cambridgeshire; Abington, Cambridgeshire; Flimwell, East Sussex; Hellingly, East Sussex; Lincoln; Boston; Chester; Warminster, Wiltshire.

Simon Chaplin, director of Christie & Co, which is marketing the sites, said the agency was anticipating a great deal of interest.

"Little Chef is synonymous with convenient roadside locations and while these sites have been identified as surplus to the estate and earmarked for letting by the company, that core advantage remains for prospective tenants," he said.

"Moreover, the sites have tremendous appeal for a variety of food and beverage and alternative uses such as retail, leisure and office accommodation."
