Greggs takes off at Gatwick

25th July 2023 | Jack Oliver

Greggs has opened its first shop in a London airport at Gatwick’s South Terminal, as the bakery chain looks beyond the high street.

The 1,600 sq ft shop is Greggs’ eighth airport location as it aims to hit its target of opening 150 net new stores in 2023.

The Gatwick launch follows on from a number of recent openings in key UK transport hubs, including at Glasgow International Airport, Shepherds Bush Underground Station, and Canary Wharf Station.

Located at the South Arrivals section of the airport, Greggs at Gatwick Airport will be open 24 hours a day and sell the chain’s full menu.

Tony Rowson, property director at Greggs, said: “Our versatile shop formats, new digital channels and relationships with our franchise and wholesale partners have enabled us to adapt our offering and expand in many new locations such as supermarkets, shopping centres and key transport hubs, like the Gatwick Airport.”
