We are delighted to announce that we have achieved a significant milestone in our estate expansion strategy - with the opening of our 2,500th shop.

In 2021, we launched our five-year growth plan, outlining our ambition to reach significantly more than 3,000 shops in the UK in the longer term. This year alone, we plan on opening between 140 and 160 new shops, with a focus on expanding Greggs presence in travel hubs and roadside locations to reach more customers.

The 2,500th shop, located in a petrol forecourt at Sainsbury's Cobham, is our eighth shop with Sainsbury’s, and brings the total number of shops with supermarket partners, including Asda and Tesco, to 50.

Greggs is a versatile brand. That means we can open a full range of formats in a variety of locations, with our digital channels enabling us to extend the reach of each shop even further.

As well as continuing to nurture and build our presence on the high street, these openings highlight how we continue to expand into more non-traditional locations. Our mission is simple – we want Greggs to be accessible, wherever, whenever, and however our customers need us.
