Is Greggs a franchise?

Greggs is the leading bakery retailer in the UK, with over 1500 shops situated across the UK’s high streets, local shopping centres, airports, business parks, universities etc; locations where people live, work and play.

Despite its popularity in the UK, Greggs does not currently offer individual franchise opportunities.

They are however working in partnership with a number of operators at the moment to test the Greggs franchise model in a number of different trading environments; these locations may include travel hubs, universities, colleges and healthcare locations.

To summarise, Greggs have no plans to offer one off franchise stores; all franchise stores will be in closed trading environments, where Greggs would be unable to open company operated stores.
