Greggs opens first London airport store at Gatwick

Food-to-go retailer Greggs has opened its first London airport store at Gatwick’s South Terminal.

The retailer said the move marks a major milestone in its expansion strategy, which focuses on extending beyond the high street to key transport hubs across the UK.

Creating 50 new jobs, the shop will be open 24 hours a day and will sell Greggs’ full menu, which includes salads, sandwiches, savouries and bakes, as well as freshly ground fairtrade coffee and sweet treats. Spanning 1,600 square feet, the store will be twice the size of a typical Greggs shop and will be situated at the South Arrivals.

Other 2023 shop openings in key transport hubs have included Glasgow International Airport, Cardiff Airport, Shepherds Bush Tube Station, and Canary Wharf Station in London, following openings in Liverpool Street Station and Birmingham and Liverpool airports last year.

Greggs is aiming to have opened 150 net new shops across various types of locations in 2023 following a record 147 launches in 2022.

Tony Rowson, property director at Greggs, said: “Driven by customer demand for convenient, great value and great-tasting products, we want Greggs to be accessible, wherever, whenever and however our customers need us. That’s why we are now focusing on growth in travel locations, so that we can continue to adapt to our customers’ needs and lifestyles and bring Greggs to more people.

“Our versatile shop formats, new digital channels and relationships with our franchise and wholesale partners have enabled us to adapt our offering and expand in many new locations such as supermarkets, shopping centres and key transport hubs, like the Gatwick Airport.”
