The drive-thru outlet is expected to open in Wales this summer following the success of a number of pilots for the format in England.

The news comes following the successful exchange on contracts for the new-build store on Fabian Way in Swansea. With construction already underway, the drive-thru shop is expected to open to the public in July.

Steve Jones, Estate Surveyor at Greggs, commented: “We anticipate that our drive-thru sites will become popular with busy families and people on the go. It is a resilient formula in general and has proven to be especially convenient for people during the pandemic restrictions.”

Alongside the newly-announced Swansea location, Greggs has exchanged contracts on two further locations in Wales. Huw Thomas, Director of Retail and Leisure at Cooke & Arkwright, commented: “The drive-thru model is quickly becoming part of Greggs’ continued expansion plan in Wales. We have been sourcing highly visible plots with good accessibility in prominent roadside locations as well as on established retail, business and industrial parks.”
