The UK’s first Sausage Roll home delivery via roller-skates was announced on Wednesday, as delivery experts Just Eat teamed up with Greggs to launch a trial of the new service. Iconic Greggs goodies like their Sausage Rolls, including their vegan version, breakfast and sweet treats will be just some of the products available on ‘rollers’, to be available exclusively for delivery via Just Eat.
The new ‘Sausage Roll-er skating Squad’ will trial deliveries from the Ludgate Hill and Palmer Street Greggs shops in London. As recent road closures around the capital have proven challenging for traditional couriers, it is hoped the trial will show that Roller-skate delivery could offer a speedy service that ensures customers get their hot Greggs sausage rolls quicker than ever.
Love Island star and avid skater Maura Higgins tried her hand at the roller-skating service to launch the trial, saying: “Roller skating has been all over my timeline during lockdown, so after hanging up my ice-skates , I was really excited to give it a go as part of the Just Eat roller squad – what a cool way to have your sausage rolls delivered!”
Professional roller-skaters will be part of the trial service for Just Eat, which if successful, will be considered for further ‘roller-out’.
Andrew Kenny, Just Eat UK Managing Director added, “At Just Eat, we are always keen to explore new ways to improve our service for customers and so as the exclusive delivery partner for Greggs, we’re delighted to be trialling a roller-skating service for them. Our customers love Greggs and we hope our sausage roll-er squad will prove to be a fun but effective way of getting Greggs into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible!”
