Greggs has announced that it will be sausage rolling out a delivery service nationwide.

The bakery chain has trialled a few different ways of getting steak bakes and whatnot delivered to your door in the past, but it’s only ever been in selected cities and for limited amounts of time.

But according to Greggs’ CEO, this time it will be nationwide and permanent.

Speaking to City AM, Roger Whiteside said: “What we have been doing for more than a year is trialling in different places and different partners and we have learned enough to decide that we are interested in rolling out across the country.”

Greggs has teamed up with food delivery service, Just Eat, to get those baked goods delivered to your door.

Andrew Kenny, Just Eat UK Managing Director, commented: "We’re proud to be the only food delivery app that can bring you the likes of the Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll wherever you are.

"This is an exciting exclusive partnership for Just Eat. Greggs has proved extremely popular with our customers, especially during breakfast, demonstrating that as a nation we love the convenience of getting our favourite food delivered – be it a Greggs bacon baguette and coffee on a Tuesday or your local Thai at the weekend."

Roger added: "We know from the trials we have carried out, that our customers love the idea that they can get Greggs delivered directly to their door and we’re delighted to now be working with Just Eat to provide that service to our customers across the UK by the end of this year."

This news has come at a great time as people are all about Greggs at the minute after the company released a vegan steak bake earlier this month.

The plant-based bake was rolled out to 1,300 shops on 2 January, then a further 700 shops will get it on 16 January.

Vegan steak not your thing? Well, it sounds like Greggs will soon release a vegan chicken bake too.

Well, we don’t actually have any solid confirmation, but Roger has spoken about the prospect of a vegan chicken bake winging its way to us in the future.

“[Vegan] chicken is a way forward. I have seen some good products out there.”

But he has admitted that making vegan versions of brands’ signature dishes comes with a number of challenges “technically and operationally,” so we might have to wait a little while it gets perfected.
