Greggs’ latest announcement comes after the bakery chain revealed it will be opening new drive-through stores in Kent.
According to The Express, plans have been submitted to various boards, with drive-thru locations to be established in Kent, Yorkshire, Slough and Stoke-on-Trent.
Greggs, which has more than 2,000 walk-in stores across the country, opened its first drive-thru in 2017.
They confirmed that several stores will open later this year, with more to come in 2022.
The locations of Kent’s new stores have yet to be confirmed.
There are already nine Greggs drive-through services in the UK, including stores in Newcastle, Bognor Regis, Glasgow, Wales and Cumbria.
In the coming months, the bakery giant will be opening stores on Eskbank Road in Dalkeith, Great Western Retail Park in Glasgow and Westgate Retail Park in Slough.
The recent announcement left fans in shock.
Greggs teased fans with the prospect in a tweet last month.
The caption read: “Sorry I’m late, the traffic was insane. Traffic: “, followed by a photo of a shop driving.
Twitter users shared their excitement about driving around in their car to grab a sausage roll.
One person replied, “Where is it! I need it in my life “.
Another said: “I might have to hire a car just for that when I visit.”
A third person added: “Oh wow… where is this paradise! Cooked steak and a sausage roll please! “
While another Twitter user said he “would even move heaven and earth for a drive nearby.”
