Greggs launches first drive-through site at Manchester service station

Bakery giant Greggs responds to demands on twitter for drive through concept and opens first of its kind site at Irlam Gateway Service Station in Salford, Manchester.

The menu includes all the Greggs classics, from steak bakes to sausage rolls, as well as sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and buns. The new Balanced Choice range of healthier sandwiches, salads and soups - all under 400 calories - is also available to grab and go.

The drive-through bakery is open from 6am to 9pm Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm on Saturday and 8am to 6pm on Sunday.

Roger Whiteside, chief executive for Greggs, said, 'When it comes to food on-the-go, our customers tell us that convenience is key.

'We’ve been working hard to take Greggs to where our customers need and want us to be including office parks, industrial estates, retail parks and travel hubs.

'A Drive Thru offers the ultimate convenience and seemed the logical next step for us to take. This is a first for Greggs and we are excited to trial the concept.'
