Nottingham burger restaurant Griddle & Shake has closed down just seven months since opening.
Owner Ed Halls had planned to make the avenue successful by offering a new wave of burgers and ice cream shakes when the venue opened in November 2016.
Despite putting his heart and soul into the project the dream did not turn into the reality at the 130-seater restaurant in Nottingham’s Fletcher Gate.
Ed, whose concept was to serve top quality burgers fast, said the decision to close had been taken after “much thought and careful deliberation.”
Soon after opening, Griddle & Shake introduced an all-you-can-eat deal on Mondays and Tuesdays in an effort to attract more customers.
Then Ed launched a £30,000 crowdfunding appeal to expand the kitchen and improve the heating system, the appeal closed after 42 days having raised just over £1,700.
