After 80 years in business, Greggs bakery revealed today that they have finally launched a delivery service. The bakery’s famous sausage rolls, bakes, wraps and breakfast menu items can now be delivered to more than one million doorsteps across Lodnon, Newcastle and Glasgow with hybrid marketplace for online food company, Just Eat. Hannah Squirrell, Customer Director at Greggs revealed the News today, and 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.”
The exciting new partnership enables customers in London, Newcastle and Glasgow to order a select range of Greggs’ savoury and sweet menu items via Just Eat with no minimum spend, including Greggs’ famous Sausage Rolls, Vegan Sausage Rolls, Steak Bakes, Doughnuts, Bacon Rolls and Coffees – perfect for breakfast or lunch.
Customers can order for delivery from 8am in both Glasgow and Newcastle and from 7am in London.
To celebrate the launch, Greggs revealed the world’s first Sausage Roll sidecar today in London to celebrate the launch.
A team of designers took two weeks to customise the vehicle, which features a six-foot golden pastry-look sidecar in tribute to the iconic savoury treat.
The bespoke Triumph Bonneville was inspired by the push-bike that Greggs founder John Gregg used in the 1930s to deliver his baked goods.
The custom delivery bike will go on a tour covering over 400 miles in three days, visiting London, Newcastle and Glasgow.
Fans will be able to take a snap of themselves in the bespoke Sausage Roll sidecar, complete with green screen and enjoy free Sausage Rolls and Vegan Sausage Rolls as it visits Glasgow, Buchanan Street on the 5th of July (11am-2pm) and Newcastle, Northumberland Street on 6th July (11am-2pm) to celebrate the launch of the service.
Graham Corfield of Just Eat, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Greggs to Just Eat bringing customers even more of their favourite food brands at the tap of the app.
“Britain’s love affair with Greggs isn’t slowing down so what better way to celebrate than with a speedy Sausage Roll-inspired delivery bike!”
The Sausage Roll sidecar hit the road for the first time, accompanied by self-confessed Greggs fan, and King of the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here Jungle, Joe Swash.
Speaking of his love for the bakery, Joe 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!”
Morrisons supermarket recently went head to head with Greggs and started selling their sausage rolls for 31p each, selling a pack of four for £1.25.
This was compared to Greggs – arguably the most popular retailer for the meaty treat – who sell theirs for £2.85 for 4. This is 71p per roll.
