Birmingham-based burger chain ‘Handmade Burger Company’ has announced plans to expand its number of restaurants by four over the coming months.  New outlets will be opened in Southampton and Glasgow later in 2014 with further restaurants in Birmingham and Nottingham to follow in 2015.  Each new site will result in the creation of around 30 jobs. The company, which was founded in Birmingham in 2006, already has two outlets in the city. The third Birmingham outlet is part of the Grand Central shopping redevelopment.
