Greggs is trialling a delivery service in London
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for…
London, you will soon be able to get a hot Greggs sausage rolls straight to your desk for lunch.
Forget walking down the road. Forget Deliveroo. It’s time for a revolution, and it involves pasties!
Yes, famous bakery chain Greggs is bringing your favourites to you with a delivery service in the capital. The delivery service, first trialled in Newcastle, is now being tested for London customers.
Two areas of London will be the first to trial the service – starting today.
They will deliver to any areas within a 0.4 mile radius of Greggs in Cheapside and Eastcheap, however there will be more trials introduced across London through 2017.
Greggs delivery staff will hand out orders of sandwiches, snacks, savouries, sweet treats and drinks to offices and homes.
Here’s the deal: Customers have to spend at least £20 to qualify for delivery and must place orders before 5pm to receive their baked goods by between 10am and 12pm the next day.
So, you need to plan your order quite far in advance… Which seems slightly illogical. But maybe that will change if it rolls out across London.
Raymond Reynolds, retail director at Greggs, said: “Convenience is key in the food-on-the-go market, and we’re extremely excited to offer delivery of a selection of our great tasting freshly prepared food directly to our customers, by trialling a free delivery service in two of our London shops.”
The two Greggs shops which will deliver are the branch in Bow Bells House in Cheapside and Eastcheap. We’d love to hear from you if you’ve placed an order and tried out the service.
