Greggs is set to open in Ireland... here is what you need to know

They are the pastry kings.

GREGGS IS AN absolute phenomenon in the UK. 

The company is now set to open its first branch in Ireland at an Applegreen service station in Dublin, a move that the company projected as part of its plans to become publicly listed back in May.

The Independent has reported that the outlet will open towards the end of the year.

This follows the opening of a Greggs outlets at service station on the M2 near Belfast.

The store has more more outlets than McDonald’s in the United Kingdom.

People in the United Kingdom are a bit obsessed with Gregg’s, and here’s why…

1. Well, we hear people are obsessed with their sausage rolls

We think we know sausage rolls here. Nothing on Greggs, apparently.

2. Their pasties are also world renowned

Seems like anything goes when it comes to fillings as well.

3. In fact, their menu pretty much has anything beige that has ever been invented

Wall-to-wall pastry beige. If a menu was designed for a hangover, this is it.

Basically, Greggs is not afraid to push the pastry boundary.
