Ed's Easy Diner has announced its new chief executive, Ivan Schofield.
Schofield will succeed current chief executive Andrew Guy when he retires from the business at the end of the year.
He spent a number of years working with Yum! brands, most recently as managing director KFC western Europe.
Schofield said: "I’m delighted to be joining the Ed's team and to have the privilege of leading the organisation through its next phase of development.
"I have huge admiration for what Andrew and the team have done so far. The brand has strength beyond its scale and is a terrific concept with great products, affordable prices and excellent service, underpinned by the timeless and universal appeal of the 1950s American Diner."
