National bakery chain Greggs is expanding its innovative online Greggs-Delivered service, powered by Preoday’s technology platform, to new stores in Manchester and Newcastle’s Quorum Business Park.
Workers around Greggs on King Street and Brazennose Street in Manchester, as well as on the Quorum Business Park in Newcastle, will be able to go to www.greggs.co.uk/delivery and pre-order and pay for all of the favourites, from single sandwiches and sweet treats to sandwich platters, and have them delivered directly to their office.
Andrew White, CEO of Preoday, commented, “With 1,698 stores nationwide, Greggs is the UK’s leading bakery food-on-the-go retailer and it is testament to the power of pre-ordering technology that is rolling out the platform to more locations. We look forward to expanding the partnership further.”
The service is currently being implemented, starting with selected shops in Newcastle, Manchester and London.
It’s not as catchy as: ‘When is a door not a door?’ (answer, when it’s a jar) but it speaks to the idea that in-car collection, and the technologies that support it, are flexible enough to bend to the needs of a business and its guests.
Delivery can be daunting to the uninitiated, and it might be tempting to sign up with a third-party ordering aggregator that offers the service, such as UberEats, but other options could suit your business and brand better. Here we present three different ‘levels’ of delivery, starting with the most basic – and cheapest method: doing it yourself.
