Default Spudulike collapses leaving all 300 staff redundant


Spudulike, founded in Edinburgh
in 1974, had sought a rescue deal
with landlords ahead of its demise



[Spudulike, the baked potato chain,
has collapsed leaving all 298 staff redundant
and facing the agony of submitting claims
for lost wages.
Administrators confirmed in a statement
on Monday that all 37 of the Spudulike group's
outlets and head office were shut on Friday
after a last ditch sale of the business fell through.]

No more Hot Spuds

One of Del Boys favourites. He often wined and dined a lady at the Spudulike.

I genuinely haven't seen a spud-u-like for years. I thought they'd already closed down.

Who doesnt love a jacket spud though?....They just got greedy and priced themselves out of the market most likely. The profit margin on a spud has to be pretty high.
