Popular bakery chain is planning a 24-hour drive-thru as it gives huge update on opening hours | The Sun

A POPULAR bakery chain has announced plans for a 24-hour drive thru service.

Greggs today said it was looking at trialling the service so fans will be able to grab a bite regardless of the hour.

It did not say when, or at what stores the service would run at.

Greggs does not currently operate any 24-hour drive thru branches.

Roisin Currie, chief executive officer, said the chain had plans to open another eight to 10 drive thrus in total this year.

She added: "We like drive-thrus because they can serve the click and collect customers and people wanting to sit in too."
