Eds Easy Diner to launch in Rugby

Ed’s Easy Diner has signed up to open at Elliott’s Field Shopping Park, its £35m extension and redevelopment in Rugby.

Ed’s Easy Diner, which will be making its debut in Rugby, will take a 2,500 sq ft unit on a 15 year lease. Already a mainstay amongst the leading restaurateurs in a number of Hammerson’s shopping centres across the UK, the opening at Elliott’s Field marks a significant first for the popular retro American restaurant in the Company’s out-of-town portfolio.

Andrew Guy, CEO of Ed’s Easy Diner, said, “Elliott’s Field Shopping Park represents a great opportunity for Ed’s, further extending our reach into the Midlands. We’ll be working closely with employment charity Springboard, hiring around 25 new staff from the surrounding area. The new redevelopment will hopefully attract a large number of people from all over Rugby later this year.”

Ed’s Easy Dinner will be joined by other recent signings including Caffé Nero, which has signed up to take a 1,500 sq ft unit on a 10 year lease, and popular casual dining restaurant, Nando’s that will take a 3,500 sq ft unit in the scheme.

On schedule to open later this year, Elliott’s Field will comprise 180,000 sq ft of retail and dining floorspace and 567 car parking spaces.
