Greggs Now Does Delivery Thanks To New Trial With Deliveroo
Look, we've all been there. You start work in three minutes, but while racing to the office you pass the local Greggs down the road - pausing for a second to consider whether or not you can risk being late by queueing up for that bacon sarnie that you so desperately need after those post-work pints last night.
You always eventually decide that you'd rather deal with your boss' wrath than miss out on a Greggs sausage roll or breakfast butty. Not a bad outcome, but also not ideal if you're on your last warning.
Then what about ALL those times you've been lying in bed hungover to hell, absolutely dying for a Festive Bake but without anyone there to bully into going and fetching one for you? Honestly, it can be really, really hard.
Well, now there's an answer to solve all your woes, as Greggs has launched a new delivery service trial with Deliveroo.
Following the success of a recent trial in Birmingham, Greggs is also testing the waters in Bristol, Newcastle and London at select stores.
While you won't get to choose from the full Greggs menu on Deliveroo, you'll see popular menu items like sausage rolls, savouries, coffee, breakfast staples, sarnies, salads and sweet treats, along with meal deal options.
Roger Whiteside, Chief Executive at Greggs, said: "When it comes to food-on-the-go, our customers tell us that convenience is key. We've been working hard to make Greggs available to our customers when and where they want it, whether that be in offices, industrial estates, retail parks, travel hubs and at home.
"We've been working on our delivery services over the past year and, following a successful trial in Birmingham, we're excited to launch a Deliveroo trial for our customers in Bristol. This will enable customers to enjoy our great tasting, good value food wherever they are, offering them the ultimate convenience."
Joe Groves at Deliveroo, added: "Greggs is an icon of the British high street, so we know Deliveroo customers are going to love getting their favourite bakes and bites delivered to them in under 30 minutes."
Greggs shops available for Deliveroo delivery include: 78 East Street, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 4JD; 87 Broadmead, Bristol, BS1 3DT; 209 Chillingham Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 5LL; 42 Neville St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5DF; 243 Whitechapel Road, London, E1 1DB; and 143 Strand, Central London, WC2R 1JA.
