Hugely popular chain Greggs has opened a new store in an Essex town, creating 15 new jobs. The venue has opened in Market Place, Saffron Walden today (May 17).

The shop will stock Greggs favourites, including the on-the-go-retailer’s popular Sausage Roll, Steak Bake and other vegan alternatives. The bakery will also offer a breakfast roll or baguette alongside a Fairtrade orange juice or hot drink - served until 11am every day.

Ahead of the summer, Greggs have also launched two brand-new pasta pots - the Piri Piri Chicken Pasta and Pesto & Mozzarella Pasta and a handful of returning menu items with new and improved recipes; Sweet Potato Bhaji & Rice, Smoky Cajun Rice with BBQ Chicken & Sweetcorn Fritters, Feta & Tomato Pasta and Chicken & Bacon Pasta.
