Greggs set to open on the Arden Forest Industrial Estate in Alcester

The national business, which is famed for its sausage rolls and steak bakes, is looking to open at Alcester Business Centre on the Kinwarton Farm Road, part of the Arden Forest industrial estate.

While there is no confirmed opening date as yet, the company set out in 2021 ambitious plans to double sales over the next five years.

The firm has started a recruitment drive for an Alcester branch and in January, Stratford District Council approved a planning application for shop signage.

A Greggs spokesperson said: “Greggs is always looking into new shop locations. While we are unable to confirm anything at the moment, we will be sure to share any information in due course.”

The business has close to 2,000 locations across the UK and employs around 22,000 people.

It was started in 1939 by John Gregg who delivered fresh eggs and yeast by pushbike to the families of Newcastle. He opened his first shop making and selling fresh bread in 1951.
