Detailed business information
|Business Name: Greggs|
Greggs began as a family business and we have retained our good, honest family values as the business has grown.
Our values are our commitment to the way we will treat each other. We aspire to be a company that everyone is proud to shop with, work for and do business with. Our values apply to all our stakeholders, including our customers, our people, our shareholders and our suppliers.
Founded as a family bakery business on Tyneside in the 1930s, Greggs has been baking for over 70 years. We have an impressive history of growth from just one shop to over 1, 400 across the UK.
The business began in the late 1930s when John Gregg delivered yeast, eggs and confectionary on his bicycle. The first small shop, with a bakery at the rear, opened in 1951.
Following the death of John in 1964, his son Ian Gregg took over the family business, which by then had added seven delivery vans to the shop and bakery. Under Ian's leadership, the first regional bakery was built in Newcastle and by the 1970s Greggs had expanded into Scotland, Yorkshire and the North West.
