Greggs unveils motorway services drive
Moto, the former Granada motorway services business, will operate a pair of Greggs franchises as part of a 12-month trial, with the first due to open in December at Lymm in Cheshire.
If the trial is successful then Moto – which has 45 UK sites, including Kinross, Musselburgh and Stirling – could roll out the franchise to 30 of its stations.
Ken McMeikan, Greggs’ Scots-born chief executive, said: “We are delighted to team up with Moto in the motorway services market.
“It is an excellent operator and I hope this will be the beginning of a long and successful relationship.
“Making Greggs even more accessible to consumers as they travel will, I hope, be welcomed by both existing and new customers of Greggs.”
The bakery chain already has more than 1,500 outlets.
