    Yes, we have to make 100+ sandwiches a day in my location so we start making them at around 6am for a 8am open. Two people are preparing the shop to open. Mexican chicken is the hardest to make.

    I LOVE GREGGS

    3rd favourite is probably the classic: the sausage roll. I get a 50% discount on most items, 25% on stuff that gets brought in such as Coke products and charity items (such as CIN items)

    why are the sausage rolls and other hot food always so damn cold

    so many times i've gone in there and been given food that just isn't warm enough.

    I rarely go to greggs nowadays because of it.

    I've even asked staff before if the food was hot [before I bought it] and I've been reassured "yes" ...but then when I took a bite I realized i've been fibbed to.

    Vegetable pastys are okay, not the best thing in the world. I find they're quite spicy so I have to be in the mood for them. :giggle:

    Due to Pasty Tax we don't keep our food hot so if food isn't hot it means that it's been out of the oven and hasn't been sold. If you ask a staff member to check it's hot they should be happy to do so.

    It's a shame you were fibbed to, but sadly some people think things are hotter than others. I'm not speaking for the company here so obviously this opinion is my own.

    If you ask what's just come out of the oven they should be able to tell you. The best time I've found is to go between 12 and 2 since that's lunch time.
