Greggs on a roll as it moves to feed a nation on the go
Last season, as the Championship team struggled towards promotion, Ms Alexander watched goal-starved fans stream into her branch of Greggs craving the glutinous nourishment of an iced doughnut or a steaming sausage roll. While Greggs' most popular product remains the sausage roll, a staple it churns out in huge quantities in a factory near Longbenton, a few miles north of Newcastle, it has carved a slice out of Britain's increasingly lean culinary scene. Tony Bosanko, who worked for a decade at a Dunlop tyre plant and is now in charge of production at the factory where Greggs makes its savoury pastries, says he considers himself a "Foodie". The main constraint Greggs faces, he believes, is one he is striving to remove by opening more stores. "They're out of the house, and they need breakfast. Where is it? They ain't gonna go looking. We have to be there."
