Greggs to launch first drive through site next month

British bakery chain Greggs is set to open its first drive through site, which will be in Newcastle, at Tyneside Auto Parc.

The scheme to open the fast food branch off the A1056 Sandy Lane, North Gosforth , was given the go-ahead by planners last year and construction work is well underway, with the opening earmarked for June.

Customers will be able to enjoy a range of hot and cold sandwiches, freshly prepared throughout the day, as well as soups and freshly baked savouries including normal and vegan sausage rolls!

Breakfast will be served until 11am, featuring traditional classics such as bacon rolls, fresh fruit and a full range of freshly ground, Fairtrade coffee and cold drinks.

The Balanced Choice range includes a selection of sandwiches, pasta salads, soups, drinks, porridge and fruit - all for fewer than 400 calories.

The new Greggs Drive-Thru will be open from 6am to 9pm from Monday – Saturday, with shorter hours on a Sunday.
