You Can Now Get Greggs Delivered To Your Door On Just Eat

We all like pastries, but we don't all like walking - and where there is demand, there is usually supply.

Naturally then, the day has at last come, and we can now get Greggs delivered to our doors on Just Eat.

Let's face it, the worst thing about getting a Greggs is queuing up with the grease hungry masses, all the while worrying that the old dear in front of you is going to snaffle the last steak bake. But now, you can sit back and tap a few buttons and wait for the good stuff to come to you... while the old dear queues up like a damn fool, completely unaware that Just Eat even exists.

There is, however, a catch.

The service is currently only available in three cities: London, Glasgow and Newcastle. So I'm afraid if you live elsewhere you're still gonna have to get in line.

If you are one of the lucky blighters who lives in one of the aforementioned cities, Just Eat will deliver from the following stores: Whitechapel, East Ham, Elephant & Castle, St Mary's Place, Gosforth High Street, Byker, Victoria Road, Gordon Street and Dumbarton Road.

Fairly inexplicably, the country's favourite baker celebrated the partnership by launching a 'sausage roll sidecar', which unsurprisingly is thought to be a world first.

A team of designers took two weeks to customise the vehicle, which features a six-foot golden pastry-like sidecar. The bespoke Triumph Bonneville was inspired by the push-bike that Greggs founder, John Gregg, used in the 1930s to deliver his baked goods.

As if that wasn't enough, Greggs also got the Joe Swash to get on board for its maiden voyage.

By the sounds of it, the cheeky chappy can't wait to put a few cheeky orders in on Just Eat.

He said: "With Greggs now on Just Eat, breakfast and lunch just got infinitely better. Their bacon rolls are my favourite, I reckon I'll be putting a few cheeky orders in myself."

How very cheeky indeed.

Hannah Squirrell (fantastic name right there), customer director at Greggs, is also pretty buzzing about the partnership.

She said: "We're thrilled to be working with Just Eat to make it even easier for our customers to enjoy their breakfast and lunch menu favourites.

"From bacon rolls and coffees to our range of bakes, sandwiches and wraps, we'll be able to go direct to the doorsteps of more than a million hungry households."

Good stuff - now get cracking on nationalising this partnership, Squirrell.
