The first Greggs was opened in 1951. Growing regionally from its North East base, Greggs began to acquire other regional bakery chains across the rest of the country from the 1970s onwards.
By the 1990s, it was the largest bakery chain in the country after acquiring its major rival, Bakers Oven, in 1994. In 2017, the chain had 1,764 outlets, including 143 franchised outlets.
In 2013, Greggs began to transition out of the bakery market with the reasoning that it couldn’t compete with supermarkets on that front. Instead, the company switched to focusing solely on the “food on the go” market after discovering that 80% of its business was with that market.
Part of this was having many of its stores open earlier and close later, in order to target those going to and coming back from work, expanding its breakfast menu to suit.
Part of this change meant discontinuing the sale of bread and scones in many of its stores.
What makes Greggs franchises – such as Greggs Nunney Catch – a little bit different to other new brands is that most units have been modified so customers can visit without entering the main amenity building.
This helps the company’s tax accounts: by not offering the option of eat-in food, the food is then exempt from VAT, which in theory means it can be served at a lower price.
Greggs Nunney Catch is located next to the Euro Garage Nunney Catch.
