Upper Crust and The Pasty Shop are both small chains selling baked goods. They have a similar range of items to Subway and West Cornwall Pasty Co respectively. Off the motorway, every Upper Crust and The Pasty Shop is operated by SSP, meaning that their stores are usually located at railway stations.
Moto introduced Upper Crust stalls to some of their services to replace Granada's previous self-branded snack store. They have all since closed, with Cherwell Valley being the last closing in March 2020.
Following losses incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, SSP Group announced 5,000 potential redundancies in July 2020. It is thought that most of these will impact Upper Crust. The branches operated by Moto and Welcome Break should (in theory) be safe, but other branches may be affected.
