Greggs lays down the gauntlet to food deliverers
It’s a hot item juggernaut, it’s a vegan sausage roll and steak bake slinger; it wants to deliver those things nationwide! It’s: Greggs. Chief executive Stuart Whiteside has told City AM that the company will soon announce plans to expand on its delivery trials, which began on Deliveroo as part of a one-upmanship battle between the blue delivery kangaroo and Uber Eats. It could also include extending bakery opening times from 6p.m. — 9p.m. to capitalise on that well-established demographic, the early evening sausage roll crowd. [City AM]
