“Ed’s is one of the fastest growing Casual Dining formats in the UK and its franchise partnership with SSP is a perfect combination to drive operating success in the more complex station environment. We believe Ed’s will be a welcome addition to our Liverpool Street portfolio, providing locals and station users a unique US-style diner experience.”

SSP CEO UK Simon Smith commented: “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, cafes and shops that visitors to Liverpool Street will be able to enjoy.”


Ed’s Easy Diner CEO Andrew Guy said: “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. Together with SSP, we’ll aim to open ten more diners by the summer of 2020 in UK stations, airports and visitor attractions.”

SSP will also open Mi Casa Burritos and Leon restaurants at London Liverpool Street this year.
