Greggs Have Launched A Delivery Service. This Is Not A Drill.

Greggs Ups Their Game

What do Doritos, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Gregg’s sausage rolls have in common? They’re all guilty pleasures. And now you can enjoy all three at once from the comfort of your bed, thanks to the new Greggs delivery service.

It’s not just sausage rolls. The gods of Greggs have answered our prayers and are now delivering anything from their menu straight to our doorsteps. Or even to our offices. Eating a four-pack of donuts at a desk is one of life’s great pleasures.

There are some catches, though. First of all, Greggs is not delivering to many areas. In Newcastle, there are quite a few guinea pig shops delivering to local offices. But in London, the store only delivers to doors within a 0.4mile radius of the Greggs in Cheapside and Eastcheap.

So this doesn’t apply to a lot of us. But you might be better off wating for the service to iron out a few kinks anyway. Everyone knows that the basic appeal of Greggs is that it’s really cheap. But right now, if you want the food delivered to you then there is a £20 minimum spend. So you’d have to buy 11 sausage rolls, or over 20 donuts, to be able to order online. We’re all for Cheat Days, but that seems a bit excessive.

The biggest drawback is timing. If you want a Greggs lunchtime delivery, then you have to place the order before 5pm the day before. And who schedules their Greggs meals like that? What if you think you’ll fancy a pasty but on the day you’re craving sushi? Day-before delivery doesn’t take into account that, when it comes to food, commitment really isn’t our thing. Unless it’s Doritos. They’re just timeless.
