Greggs announces plan to open 24-hour drive-thru


You can soon carb up and get stuck into a sausage roll or two, day or night, from Greggs 24-hour drive-thrus which are set to pop up across the UK soon. Adding another 150 stores to their baking catalogue, the new establishments will be open around the clock.

We already have 2,330 regular Greggs establishments in the country with 12 drive-thrus landing in 2017 open between 6am and 9pm, but the new trials will make the baked good available 24/7.

Chief executive of Greggs, Roisin Currie, announced: “Customers are seeking out great quality and great value, and that’s exactly what we offer.

“If you are a person who is out and about – whether you are going to work, or going to college or going to meet friends and you need to eat, then you are coming into Greggs and having a breakfast for £2.60, a lunch for £3.60, or an evening meal offer.

“It is just that easy way to fuel yourself when you’re on the go and you need to eat.”

The good news is, there are no current plans to put up any prices. Currie said: "2022 has been a year of strong progress for Greggs, the result of committed efforts to deliver our strategic growth plan.

"The significant opportunities on which the plan is based will remain centre stage in the year ahead as we make Greggs more accessible to even more customers.

"Although consumer incomes remain under pressure, Greggs continues to offer exceptional value to people looking for great tasting, high-quality food and drink on-the-go.

"We have an exciting, ambitious plan for the years ahead and, by continuing to nurture what makes Greggs special, I believe we are extremely well-placed to realise the opportunity to become a significantly larger, multi-channel business."
