 The baker, which has already opened units in similar non-retail locations in Avonmouth, Bridgwater, ExeterSwansea and Cardiff, will provide a range of hot and cold food for people who work on the Beeches Estate.
Chris Davies, leasing manager at estate owners SEGRO, said: “This is part of a growing trend across our estates of providing good quality food outlets within easy access of our customers. 
“Having a good quality bakery on the site will improve choice and make life easier for people who work at the Beeches. The philosophy at SEGRO is one of encouraging businesses to flourish and succeed and attracting major chains like Greggs to open on one of our sites is a clear benefit to all involved.”
