Greggs now does home delivery, meaning you can finally get vegan sausage rolls delivered to your house.
Greggs previously trialed delivery with Uber Eats in 2017 but dropped the service shortly after. Now Greggs delivery is alive and well once again, but there’s a catch: it’s only available though the Just Eat delivery app at select stores in London, Newcastle, and Glasgow.
Greggs Home Delivery
If you’re in London, those bakeries are in Elephant and Castle, East Ham, and Whitechapel. In Newcastle, the bakery chain will deliver from Saint Mary’s Place, Byker, and Gosforth High Street. In Glasglow, it’s the Dumbarton Road, Gordon Street, and Victoria Road locations. Just Eat told The Sun that if Greggs delivery is successful it will be rolled out to other cities.
Meat-Free Sausage Rolls
Requests for vegan sausage rolls have long peppered Greggs’ social media posts. The bakery chain finally made the product available at the beginning of the year, stirring up the troll-ish ire of “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan but mostly, generating a great deal of praise from sausage roll fans across the UK.
Greggs vegan sausage rolls — made from Quorn sausage and dairy-free puff pastry — were nearly impossible to get a hold of for a short while, with customers coming up empty-handed even after visiting several stores. Some were willing to bid £7 for the pastry on eBay. The popular launch sparked new interest in veganism — there was an increase in Google searches about vegan living following the meat-free sausage roll launch.
According to Greggs chief executive Roger Whiteside, the publicity helped boost the bakery chain’s sales. “We’re not giving out numbers – it’s in the hundreds of thousands – but it is the fastest selling new product we have launched in six years. It’s literally flying off the shelves,” he told ITV in February. That same month, he revealed that the chain plans to add more vegan options to the menu, but didn’t disclose specifics.
