Greggs: tests motorway service-station market

Greggs is to trial opening stores at motorway service locations across the country in a bid to drive up profits.

The high-street baker is running the 12-month trial with Moto, the motorway service provider. The initiative will be run as a franchise operation, which is new to Greggs. 

The Greggs service station shop in Lymn, Cheshire, opens in December and will operate for a year before the company decides whether to roll out to a further 30 locations across the country.

Last month, Greggs announced plans to launch its first coffee shop, called Greggs Moment. The shop in Newcastle will sell a new range of bakery products, along with coffee and teas.

In September, Greggs commissioned its first digital ad campaign for a product launch.
