POTATO lovers of Renfrewshire can celebrate as Spudulike has returned to Intu Braehead. 

Less than eight weeks since the brand disappeared from the UK's high streets and shopping centres, a selection of outlets have been reopened by Albert Bartlett, offering hot and comforting jackets with fillings of your choice.

Commenting on the new beginning for a revitalised and upgraded Spudulike, manager, Yvonne Hughes, said: “Who would have thought we’d be back in business, doing what we do best, baking the tastiest potatoes at the Braehead Shopping Centre for our band of fans in Renfrewshire? What’s more, we’re reopening with some really exciting changes I know our customers will love.’’

As part of an initial upgrade and re-opening programme, Albert Bartlett will be introducing Spudulike customers to freshly sourced, best of British Albert Bartlett potatoes.

A spud-connoisseur’s dream, the delicious potatoes are specially selected for their fluffy texture and buttery taste.

The stores will also be opening with a new, delicious Spudulike dessert menu, a barista-style coffee selection and responsibly sourced ingredients such as line-caught tuna.

Eco-conscious customers will be delighted to hear that packaging has also been upgradedwith the introduction of packaging made from plants using renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials, which can be composted with food waste.

Yvonne added: "A stuffed and steaming baked potato is a great British tradition, it’s a healthier alternative and we’re delighted to be bringing back Spudulike with better quality, sensibly priced potatoes."
