But Greggs has a long history of doing well on Wearside.
So let’s remind ourselves of the bakery we love so well. Here are lots of scenes from Greggs shops in Sunderland.
There’s also photos from some of the great causes that the bakery supports in the community.
Take a look and see if you can remember these stories, and perhaps spot someone you know.
1. Time for a tasty bun
Back to 2010 when Greggs announced a profit increase and we photographed a young fan of the bakery enjoying a delicious bun.
2. Houghton in 2007
