Greggs roll-out first Drive-Thru

0

YOU CAN now go and get your favourite iced bun or pasty without getting out of your car.

Having caved in to popular demand on Twitter, Greggs has launched its first drive-thru and it’s in Greater Manchester at the new branch at Irlam Gateway Service Station in Salford.

The menu will include all the Greggs classics, from steak bakes to sausage rolls, as well as sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and buns.

The new Balanced Choice range of healthier sandwiches, salads and soups – all under 400 calories – will also be available to ‘grab and go’.

The new concept, which follows the launch of Greggs’ delivery service in Manchester, is being tried out there before a potential nationwide roll-out, but bosses say there are no immediate plans to open any more.

Roger Whiteside, Chief Executive for Greggs, said: “When it comes to food on-the- go, our customers tell us that convenience is key. We’ve been working hard to take Greggs to where our customers need and want us to be including office parks, industrial estates, retail parks and travel hubs.

“A drive thru offers the ultimate convenience and seemed the logical next step for us to take. This is a first for Greggs and we are excited to trial the concept in Irlam, Manchester.”

The branch opened on Monday June 5 and will be open from 6am to 9pm Monday to Friday, from 7am to 7pm on Saturday and 8am to 6pm on Sunday.
