Euro Garages has sealed a deal to buy the Little Chef chain of roadside restaurants, previously owned by the Kout Food Group, which bought the chain in 2013 for £15m.

A spokesperson for Intervias, parent company of Euro Garages, said: "We’ve completed the acquisition of two companies from the Kout Food Group, that between them control 78 roadside sites.

"The acquisition includes usage rights to the Little Chef and related brands. This transaction forms part of our growth plan to acquire and develop strategically-positioned sites, allowing us to bring a portfolio of market-leading brands to consumers and communities across the UK and elsewhere in Europe."

Meanwhile, the company has also bought Top 50 Indie High Noon Stores Ltd, based in the South West and Wales. It acquired the first four sites in January from the administrator, and the second group of four sites last month.
