Muffin Break to launch its first grab-and-go concept at Birmingham New Street Station on 24 September. 

The artisan bakery chain is planning to roll out the concept to other stores across the UK and is looking at other transport hubs. The company aims to open 16 sites before the end of the financial year.

The grab-and-go stores will be serving food options such as sandwiches, wraps, paninis, baguettes and a sweet selection. There will also be a range of cold drinks available as well as Muffin Break’s bespoke coffee blend.

Lisa Brook, general manager at Muffin Break, said: “There’s a real demand for quick meal options from busy commuters who will be passing through the train station every day, so our new grab-and-go service will give them access to healthy on-the-go dishes.

“The introduction of modern street food, combined with increasingly busy lifestyles, has made grab-and-go food options an expectation for almost all catering establishments, including Muffin Break.

“Busy lives should no longer mean bland fast food for commuters on the run, because eating on-the-go has become particularly prominent on the high street, where authentic flavours and dishes have been made in a grab-and-go style, with options available for all diets and tastes. From meals served as takeaway options, to bundle meals featuring favourites such as sandwiches, jacket potatoes and soups, we are always searching for delicious new food options that are affordable and attractive to our customers.”
