The future of Handmade Burger Co appears to have been secured following its sale to an unnamed buyer.

The family-run chain collapsed in to administration on 6 July​ with the closure of nine of its restaurants.

Administrators from Leonard Curtis Recovery confirmed today (26 July) that a sale has been completed, saving all 530 jobs at the group’s remaining 20 restaurants.

“Since our appointment we have worked hard to secure the most favourable outcome for all creditors,” says joint administrator Julien Irving.

“We have since managed to secure a buyer for the business and are delighted that this positive outcome has been achieved.”

Handmade Burger Co was founded by the Sargeant family in Birmingham in 2006 and serves over 40 different burgers made from scratch everyday.

It was awarded Gluten Free accreditation from Coeliac UK​ in 2015 and offers a range of vegetarian and vegan options.

The company received a £600,000 cash injection from Finance Birmingham​ in 2015 to refurbish two of its restaurants and fit out its site at Grand Central in Birmingham, which has since closed
