Detailed business information
At Greggs, we have big plans for the future and big opportunities available today. Of course, we all know that these are difficult times, but we ve continued to grow. How? We put it down to our famous offering, loyal customers and excellent people - together, the perfect recipe for success. That recipe has helped us become the country's leading retail baker. We specialise in sandwiches, savouries and all sorts of other baker-fresh food on-the-go.
We started business in the late 1930s, when John Gregg delivered yeast, eggs and confectionary on his bicycle. After opening our first shop in 1951, we ve grown so much that we now have ten large-scale bakeries around the UK supplying the majority of our 1, 500 shops. Millions of hungry customers walk into our shops every single week. And while those shops (and our products) may have changed, we're still just as committed to serving fresh, quality, affordable bakery food.
In fact, two thirds of our sales come from the sandwiches we make in our shops, and freshly baked savouries such as pasties and sausage rolls. Our people work in a variety of different jobs, including retail, management, bakery, delivery and administration roles. Our aim has always been to promote from within. And wherever you work at Greggs, you'll find we all pull together as part of the same family.
