Greggs dishes up 500 new jobs

High-street bakery chain Greggs plans 100 net store openings this year, creating around 500 new jobs in the coming months.

Greggs, which had 2,115 shops at the start of July, looks to grow to at least 3,000 stores as profits bounce back to outstrip pre-pandemic levels.

Greggs CEO Roger Whiteside said: “We continue to make good progress with our strategic priorities, growing the shop estate and investing in our digital capabilities to compete in all channels and parts of our market.”
