Wanting to increase their presence and market share, Greggs opened their first Moto-operated franchised bakery at Lymm truckstop in early 2012, with high hopes. Following good sales a second store was opened at Birch eastbound the following June, and it was then confirmed that most Moto services would get one.

Moto have also been opening franchises at some Extra services.

What makes Greggs a little bit different to other new brands is that most units have been modified so customers can visit without entering the main amenity building. This helped Moto's tax accounts: by not offering the option of eat-in food, the food was exempt from VAT, although the notorious pasty tax complicated things.

Following its success with Moto services, Greggs was added to petrol stations and also picked up by Euro Garages. In Northern Ireland, Greggs is used at all of Applegreen's motorway services, however as the brand is not established south of the border it cannot be at the majority of Applegreen's portfolio. Euro Garages are now introducing the country's first Greggs drive thrus.

On the baked goods front, Moto had been using Upper Crust as a bakery brand, although this sold fewer hot goods and began to lose ground to Moto's other stores. In 2011 they also introduced West Cornwall Pasty Co., mostly in stands outside the services.
