A number of Spudulike sites have reopened under a new owner, two months after the baked potato chain entered administration.
Global potato supplier Albert Bartlett has revived eight shopping mall restaurants in in York, Manchester, Livingston, Glasgow, Bluewater, Norwich, Bridgend and Leeds.
A total of 37 sites closed when the chain entered administration in August.
The reopened outlets feature a lower-priced and ‘upgraded menu’, made using Albert Bartlett potatoes.
A statement on Spudulike’s website says: “We’re excited to announce that Spudulike is back. If you’d been missing your favourite baked potato fix, you can now find us again at selected shopping centres across the UK.
“Over the years, Spudulike has had several owners and has operated as a franchise and managed operation. However, an exciting, new era dawns as our much-loved brand becomes part of the Albert Bartlett portfolio – which means top notch spuds, baked the way you love, at lower prices that will make you smile.”
