Our strategic pillars

In 2021, we set out an ambitious plan to double sales over the next five years.  The fundamental strategic pillars of our business model have not changed and Greggs will always offer great-tasting food, brilliant value for money and a friendly customer experience, but we have identified four key growth drivers which will become the focus of our plan to reach our full potential in the years ahead.

Great tasting, freshly prepared food

You cannot beat freshly baked, freshly prepared food. With great flavours, responsibly sourced ingredients, trademark Greggs quality and outstanding value, our food-on-the-go leads the way.

Best customer experience

The fast and friendly experience is a key reason why customers choose Greggs again and again. Our colleagues do an amazing job in-shop, while the Greggs App and the deployment of new Customer Relationship Management capabilities allow our teams to talk to our customers like never before.

Competitive supply chain

At Greggs we own our own supply chain, which means we can ensure our high standards are met at every stage of the journey – from our manufacturing sites, logistics, right to our shops.

First class support teams

We invest heavily in cutting-edge systems which equip our support teams to provide the best service to their colleagues, and ultimately, to Greggs customers.

Our four key drivers of growth

Growing the Greggs estate

Through new shop openings, relocations and the next generation of shop refits, our ambition is to reach significantly more than 3,000 shops.

Extending trade into the evening

By extending our trading hours, adding exciting new additions to our menu and leveraging our existing customer channels, we are able to compete more effectively for food-to-go sales in the evening.

Digital channels

We’ve transformed our business by expanding the Greggs digital capabilities to suit customers’ changing needs. Via the Greggs App, website, Click + Collect and our Just Eat partnership, we have become a brand considered by more people, more of the time and in more places when they need food-on-the-go.

Broadening customer appeal and driving loyalty

We’ve never had so much to talk about – whether that’s new products, our evening expansion, exciting new shops, delivery, the Greggs App, our latest partnership or the Greggs Pledge. We are encouraging more customers to visit us more often. The more reasons we can provide for them to consider us, the more likely we are to be their brand of choice.

A message from our Chief Executive,
Roisin Currie

"2023 was another year of rapid growth and strong progress for Greggs. Our teams across the business, whether in our shops, our manufacturing sites, our distribution network, or in Greggs House, continued to rise to the challenge of serving more customers through more channels - working tirelessly to keep pace with increased customer demand.

Two years into our exciting, ambitious five-year plan to double sales by 2026 and to have significantly more than 3,000 shops in the UK, our growth strategy is working. The significant opportunities on which the strategy is based will remain centre stage as we make Greggs more accessible to even more customers.

Despite inflation and the resulting cost-of-living pressure, the resilience of the Greggs brand and the strength of our underlying business means we kept on providing the great value, tasty products and friendly service that our customers love us for.

I am optimistic and excited about delivering our bold five-year growth plan as we continue on our journey to become a significantly larger, multi-channel business."
