Seventy five years ago, John Gregg started out with one goal, to deliver (by pushbike) fresh eggs and yeast to the families of Newcastle. Ten years later he chained up his bike and opened Greggs of Gosforth. Making, baking and selling fresh bread and tasty treats from his very own shop on Gosforth High Street…there’s still a Greggs there today.
Over the years we opened more shops across the country and looked for ways we could make Greggs even better.
Our menu changed with the nation’s taste – who’d have thought of freshly ground Fairtrade Espresso from Greggs, we added calories to our menu (before we had to) and we provided free wifi – that’s been voted best on the high street.
