National bakery chain, Greggs are redefining the role of the high street bakery by offering Greggs Delivered, a new online ordering and delivery service, powered by the Preoday ordering platform.
The new service has been introduced at Cobalt Business Park in Newcastle where the 14,000 workers in the area can pre-order and pay for all of the Greggs favourites such as the sausage rolls and sandwich platters, and have it delivered directly to their office.
Amy Carroll, communications manager at Cobalt Business Park says, ‘I am sure Greggs Delivered will provide a popular choice for our business catering for meetings and for people who fancy a team lunch.’
The flexibility of the Preoday platform has proven the winning formula for the Greggs implementation, providing Greggs access to numerous technology-based services.
Matt Graywood, Chief Operating Officer of Preoday says, ‘We are very excited about our partnership with Greggs. Their drive for innovation matched perfectly with Preoday’s vision for e-commerce in hospitality, and we look forward to helping expand Greggs Delivered further across the UK .
The Greggs Delivered service will be shortly expanding across 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.
