Wisbech Little Chef to close but Long Sutton is safe for now

STAFF at the Wisbech Little Chef have been told that the restaurant will be closing at the end of the month but the Long Sutton site seems to have escaped for the moment.

The news came on Wednesday as Little Chef announced it would be closing 67 out of its current portfolio of 161 sites.

The Wisbech restaurant will close its doors on January 31, making the handful of staff who work there redundant.

A statement released by Little Chef said the sites earmarked for closure have been trading unprofitably for a number of years.

A staff member at the Long Sutton site said they were told they might close, but as they are most profitable restaurant in the area, they may escape the current round of closures.
