Starbucks Corp, Dunkin' Brands Group Inc, Peet's Coffee and British bakery-cafe chain Greggs PLC have been forced to rethink how to serve customers quickly while keeping staffers safe and still make enough money to operate. At Peet's Coffee, the U.S. chain owned by JDE Peet's, 191 of the 250 company-operated stores had reopened as of Thursday. "We moved all of the tables to the front of the store, blocking the entrance," said Mary Dusenbury, senior director of retail marketing at Peet's. Registers and chip readers were also moved to the front, so customers can perform their own credit-card transactions, with chip pads wiped down after each guest.
The UK bakery chain said it planned to reopen hundreds of outlets from the middle of June, nearly three months after it closed all 2,050 of its stores.

Shares in British baker and takeaway food group Greggs <GRG.L> tumbled as much as 7.3% on Friday after it reversed a decision to re-open some stores, leading analysts to question how it can successfully emerge from the country's coronavirus lockdown. All of Greggs' more than 2,050 shops have been closed since March 24 when Britain went on lockdown even though the government allowed takeaway outlets to stay open. Greggs - known for its sausage rolls and vegan snacks - had said it planned to reopen 20 shops in the Newcastle area of north-east England from next Monday in a trial to see if it could operate effectively with social distancing and other safety measures.
Greggs has postponed plans to reopen some of its stores next week over fears it could lead to crowds. Earlier this week, Greggs had said it planned to reopen 20 shops in the Newcastle area from next Monday in a trial to see if it can operate effectively with social distancing measures as the COVID-19 restrictions are eased. Greggs had hoped if the trial was successful it could move to phase two, with 700 shops reopening.

British baker and takeaway food group Greggs <GRG.L> - famed for its sausage rolls and vegan snacks - plans to reopen 20 shops from next Monday in a trial to see it can operate effectively with social distancing measures as a coronavirus lockdown is eased. All of Greggs' more than 2,050 shops have been closed since March 24 when the lockdown started even though the government allowed takeaway outlets to stay open. "We want to play our part in getting the nation back up and running again so we are planning to conduct a limited trial with volunteers to explore how we can reopen our shops with new measures in place that keep our colleagues and customers as safe as we can when we re-open at scale," a Greggs spokeswoman said on Monday.
Greggs has announced plans to reopen 20 stores as part of a "controlled trial". The bakery chain - best known for its pasties, sausage rolls and newer vegan alternatives - says the outlets are going to reopen on 4 May. Greggs is the latest high street retailer to explore reopening its shops.

British baker Greggs <GRG.L>, whose shops have been shuttered by the coronavirus emergency, has secured credit from a government support scheme to meet its liquidity needs for a prolonged closure period, it said on Thursday. Greggs has so far issued 150 million pounds ($186 million) of commercial paper with a duration of 11 months under the Bank of England's Covid Corporate Financing Facility (CCFF). Greggs had cash of 47 million pounds before receipt of the CCFF funding.
Earlier this month, Greggs warned that uncertainties over the potential impact of coronavirus were clouding its 2020 outlook, after a stellar 2019 that saw profit jump 27%. The company had increased its total dividend by 25.8% to 44.9 pence and even said it would consider payment of another special dividend at the time of its interim results, before a dramatic turn of events over COVID-19 prompted the dividend cancellation. Greggs, which has more than 2,050 outlets in the UK, said it does not expect a rise in year-on-year profit for the current fiscal.
The bakery chain Greggs said it needed to do more to help social distancing, and could not continue to operate on a takeaway-only basis.

Britain's Greggs is thinking about taking its successful fast-food store formula abroad, 12 years after abandoning a half-baked attempt to sell baguettes to the Belgians. Greggs, which tapped into the British zeitgeist with vegan sausage rolls, ended 2019 with 2,050 shops in the United Kingdom and has built capacity for 2,500. Its chief executive Roger Whiteside told reporters on Tuesday it sees the potential for "many more".
British baker Greggs' like-for-like sales were up by a "double digit" percentage in January before storms in February caused a significant slowdown in trade, its boss said on Tuesday. "We thought 'wow' this is fantastic (in January) because we were up against very strong figures the year before, but then we got three named storms all one after another," chief executive Roger Whiteside told Reuters. With regards to coronavirus, Whiteside said his main worry was the potential impact on consumer movement and demand if there was a widespread outbreak across Britain.

Greggs has reported a big rise in annual profits helped by the launch of its new vegan ranges but warned of uncertainty ahead because of the potential impact of the coronavirus. Pre-tax profits for the year ending 28 December rose 31.1% to £108.3m during what chief executive Roger Whiteside described as an "exceptional year of progress" for the company. Mr Whiteside said Greggs had enjoyed rising customer visits during 2018, which then stepped up again last year "with the successful launch of our new vegan product lines".
