Greggs to open first drive-thru site in Wales
Greggs is to open its first drive-thru outlet in Wales this summer following the success of a handful of pilots for the format in England.
Contracts have been exchanged on a new-build site on Fabian Way in Swansea and construction work is now underway. The shop will open in July.
Steve Jones, estate surveyor at Greggs, said@ “We anticipate that our drive-thru sites will become popular with busy families and people on the go. It is a resilient formula in general and has proven to be especially convenient for people during the pandemic restrictions. We are delighted to be bringing drive-thru’s to our customers in Wales with the first scheduled to open in Swansea in July.”
Huw Thomas, director of retail and leisure at Cooke & Arkwright, revealed that Greggs has exchanged contracts on two further locations in Wales. He added: “The drive-thru model is quickly becoming part of Greggs’ continuing expansion plan in Wales. We have been sourcing highly visible plots with good accessibility in prominent roadside locations as well as on established retail, business and industrial parks. We are pleased to confirm that we have secured the first three drive-thru sites in Wales with more in the pipeline.”
