A chain bakery that prepares breads, savoury snacks, sandwiches and sweet treats.
Seventy five years ago, John Gregg started out with one goal, to deliver (by pushbike) fresh eggs and yeast to the families of Newcastle. Ten years later he chained up his bike and opened Greggs of Gosforth. Making, baking and selling fresh bread and tasty treats from his very own shop on Gosforth High Street…there’s still a Greggs there today.
Over the years we opened more shops across the country and looked for ways we could make Greggs even better. Our menu changed with the nation’s taste – who’d have thought of freshly ground Fairtrade Espresso from Greggs, we added calories to our menu (before we had to) and we provided free wifi – that’s been voted the best on the high-street.
Behind the freshly made sandwiches and golden puff pastry sausage rolls we’ve always been committed to doing the right thing. Way back in the sixties we started with our free ‘pie n peas supper’ for older residents in Gateshead. And today we still have that same commitment, our annual Children’s Cancer Run has raised over £5m for Cancer Research. Every day we provide a healthy breakfast for over 6,000 primary school children with our Breakfast Club programme. All this and so much more from the Greggs Foundation.
We’re still growing but each and every shop stays true to its name and remains as good as it was the day we opened.
