Food on the go favourite Greggs has expanded its presence in the South West with a new shop opening in Cornwall.
The Newcastle based retailer has opened a new shop in U2 Enterprise Park, Saltash, marking its fourth site in the county, while also creating 13 jobs. Greggs now employs more than 50 people in Cornwall in total, through its combined portfolio of shops based in St Austell, Launceston and most recently Truro, which opened last December.
The Saltash shop opened in response to popular local demand and has further extended the retailer’s reach across the county, to provide more customers with convenient access to Greggs’ offering of great value and great-tasting products, on the go. The shop will sell its range of products, including salads and sandwiches, savouries, breakfast items, fairtrade coffee, bakes – including vegan-friendly alternatives – and sweet treats as well as recently launched hot food options.

Roisin Currie, chief executive at Greggs, said Greggs is also set to open a new Breakfast Club soon in Cornwall, in Launceston. The Breakfast Clubs form one of its key commitments as part of The Greggs Pledge, to help build stronger, healthier communities. Greggs now has more than 800 Breakfast Clubs across the UK, which provide breakfast to over 50,000 school children every school day.
Ms Currie said: “We look forward to opening Greggs in Saltash and are delighted that our products have been so warmly received by our customers across the county. As well as being able to offer a brilliant experience to customers when they visit us, we’re always keen to ensure we can make a positive impact to local communities and the jobs we have created – along with the incoming Breakfast Club (hopefully with more to follow) – is testament to that in Cornwall.

Aileen Deal, Saltash shop manager added: “It’s hugely exciting to welcome Greggs to Saltash. We have a fantastic variety of products on offer, from savoury and sweet treats to freshly prepared sandwiches and salads, all ready to serve seven days a week from early morning to evening.”
