Coffee Tempo was introduced as Little Chef's 'food on the move' concept in 2006 as a rival to Costa Coffee and Starbucks. By 2012, only 11 branches of Coffee Tempo were left and the brand was retired in favour of Little Chef Express.
Little Chef Coffee Stop
Little Chef Coffee Stop was introduced in 1994, but the roll-out was stopped when Granada took over the company in 1995 and the Cafe Nescafe and Burger King brands began to be rolled out instead.
Little Chef Lodge
The first Little Chef Lodge opened in 1972 in Gretna, followed by a further 27 hotels located next to Little Chef restaurants. They were converted to the Travelodge brand in 1988.
Motorchef was the original name for motorway service stations operated by Forte, the then owners of Little Chef. In 1979, they were rebranded to the Forte name.
