Greggs opens first drive-thru site in Wales

The Greggs bakery chain has opened its first drive-thru shop in Wales in Newport’s Maesglas district.

The new site will open from 6am to 7 pm Monday to Saturday and 8am to 5pm on Sundays.

Steve Jones, estate surveyor at Greggs said: “We are delighted to open our first drive-thru in Wales in Newport. Our drive-thrus conveniently provide our customers with all their usual Greggs favourites on-the-go and we are continuing to pursue other new drive-thru sites across Wales to support our shop estate’s growth plan in the coming years.”

Greggs said it is currently constructing a second Welsh drive-thru site on the outskirts of St Clears on the A40 which will be opening in early spring next year. In addition, a third drive-thru is under construction at Fabian Way in Swansea.

The company has retained Cooke & Arkwright to seek out new sites for the business in Wales.

Huw Thomas, director at Cooke & Arkwright’s retail and leisure agency, said: “We have been sourcing highly visible locations with good accessibility in prominent roadside positions, as well as on established retail, business and industrial parks. Alongside drive-thrus, we continue to acquire drive-to pods in a variety of locations covering all property sectors, as well as traditional shops on high street and shopping centre locations.”
