About Us

At Greggs, we have big plans for the future and big opportunities available today. Of course, we all know that these are difficult times, but we've continued to grow. How? We put it down to our famous offering, loyal customers and excellent people - together the perfect recipe for success.

That recipe has helped us become the country's leading bakery food-on-the-go retailer.  We started the business in the late 1930s, when John Gregg delivered yeast, eggs and confectionary on his bicycle. After opening our first shop in 1951, we've grown so much that we now have ten large-scale bakeries around the UK supplying nearly 1,700 shops..

Millions of hungry customers walk into our shops every single week. And while those shops (and our products) may have changed, we're still just as committed to serving fresh, quality, affordable bakery food.

With 20,000 employees at Greggs, our people work in a variety of different jobs, including retail, bakery, management and administration roles. Our aim has always been to promote from within. And wherever you work at Greggs, you'll find we all pull together as part of the same family.
