British Banger Company to close

British Banger Cafe owner Austin Newby has decided to close his restaurant at 1713 W. Douglas in Delano, which specializes in British foods. He’s hoping to sell the restaurant as a whole or at least its equipment.

He plans to stay open through the end of July.

Earlier this year, Newby bought the restaurant from original owner Pete White, who first opened it in December of 2010 . But Newby’s fiance was injured in a car accident, which caused him serious financial problems.

“It makes good money,” Newby said of the restaurant, which specializes in bangers and mash. “We’ve just gotten in a hole we are not going to be able to get our way out of.”

Anyone interested in buying the restaurant should call Newby at 316-258-9539. The restaurant’s hours until it closes are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays.
