Greggs will soon be rolling out a nationwide delivery service. This would allow customers to order baked goods online
Listen up, Greggs fans.
Soon, you could be getting sausage rolls delivered straight to your door.
The bakery chain has reportedly been trialling a delivery service since 2017.
And according to chief executive Roger Whiteside, a decision may have been made.
During a trading update this week, the Greggs insider said the company is preparing to reveal who it is partnering with.
This is likely to be with a large food ordering company, such as Just Eat, Uber Eats or Deliveroo.
The chief executive told City AM: “What we have been doing for more than a year is trialling in different places and different partners and we have learned enough to decide that we are interested in rolling out across the country.”
It could take a while for the service to be rolled out nationwide.
And it’s likely that it will only be launched in selected stores initially.
This news is likely to delight steak bake fans.
For years, customers have been calling on the baked goods giant to launch a delivery service.
Earlier this year, a punter tweeted: “Wish Greggs did delivery.”
Another said: “Can Greggs do delivery please please please.”
And a third added: “Greggs delivery would be elite.”
