Greggs has launched a new delivery service for sausage rolls – and the rest of its card – with racers on roller skates.
The trial is designed to circumvent traffic delays that may have slowed some of its home delivery services.
Love Island star Maura Higgins was on hand to help kick off the trial as Greggs teamed up with Just Eat.
Greggs treats like their sausage rolls, including the vegan version, breakfast and sweet treats will be just some of the products available on the “rolls”, which will be available exclusively for delivery through Just Eat.
The new ‘Sausage Roll-er skating Squad’ will test deliveries from Ludgate Hill and Palmer Street Greggs stores in London. As recent road closures around the capital have proved difficult for traditional couriers, it is hoped the trial will show roller skate delivery could offer a speedy service that ensures customers get their hot sausage rolls. Greggs faster than ever.
Avid skater Maura Higgins tried her hand at the roller skating service to kick off the trial, saying: ‘Roller skating has been all over my timeline during lockdown so after hanging up my ice skates I Was so excited to give it a shot as part of the Just Eat roll team – what a cool way to get your sausage rolls delivered! »
Professional roller skaters will be part of Just Eat’s trial service, which, if successful, will be considered for further ‘roll-out’.
Andrew Kenny, Managing Director of Just Eat UK, said; “At Just Eat we are always keen to explore new ways to improve our service to customers and as Greggs exclusive delivery partner we are delighted to test a roller skate service for them. Our customers love Greggs and we hope our team of sausage rollers will prove to be a fun yet effective way to get Greggs into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible!
