Britain popular bakery chain, Gregg’s is set to open in Dublin. Plans have begun to open the bakery in an Applegreen forecourt retail outlet in north county Dublin. The bakery is due to open by late this year or early 2016.
The decision comes after the success of the first outlet in Ireland which opened at a new Applegreen motorway service area on the M2 in Belfast in April this year. The branch has been doing well enough to warrant an expansion south of the border.
Applegreen, whose chief executive is Bob Etchingham, operates a total of 175 outlets and has about a 12pc share of the Irish motor fuel market. It opened 23 outlets between Ireland and the UK in the first half of 2015. Applegreen also operates four forecourts in the United States.
