We’ve come a long way from serving freshly baked products to working families around Newcastle in the 1930’s. But we’re just as keen for Greggs to have a positive impact on people’s lives today as we were then. With ambitions to grow to over 3,000 shops nationwide and ownership of our supply chain, we are in a unique position to make good, freshly prepared food accessible to everyone.
Ownership of our supply chain means that we can make good, freshly prepared food accessible to everyone at great value in an extremely competitive market place. By managing our own logistics operation, we can remain focused on the customer, delivering what our shops and customers need.
The world has changed in a short space of time; the way we shop and our food-on-the go eating habits have too. We’ve been quick to react, by building on our existing estate of shops to take Greggs where our customers want us to be and can now be found in retail parks, shopping centres, industrial estates, office parks, roadside locations and key transport hubs including motorway service stations, petrol forecourts, train stations, tube stations and airports.
Giving people a 'fresh start'
We’ve a long-standing history of working with people from disadvantaged backgrounds, including ex-offenders. At Greggs, we believe that by not overlooking any potential employees because of their past, we can select the right person and develop them to their full potential and them make a ‘Fresh Start’.
Our 'Fresh Start' programme has been recognised as an example of best practice by BITC, the Ministry of Justice and CBI.
