LONDON (Reuters) – British baker Greggs (L:) reported a 3.2 percent rise in like-for-like sales for the third quarter, an improvement on its first half, after its drinks range and new focaccia-style pizzas proved popular during a particularly hot summer.
The company, which sells sandwiches, sausage rolls and pastries from more than 1,900 outlets, said the mix of sales in the hot weather led to a lower-than-normal trading margin in the first part of the quarter, offset by improved trading in September.
It said expectations for the full year were unchanged.
