In 1984 Jeffrey Hyman opened the first Pret a Manger. Unfortunately, after just 18 months the business was struggling to make a profit. It went into administration where Sinclair Beecham and Julian Metcalfe bought the rights. They subsequently opened a new store in the middle of 1986. They focused on handmade natural food and the business prospered. It has since created the Pret Foundation Trust which aims to help the homeless, in part by delivering unsold food to them at the end of each day. The company has gradually expanded and gone from strength-to-strength. Although the health pandemic of 2019/2020 did cause a downturn in trade and the loss of jobs, they retained the shops and continued to build on their success.
The focus is on handmade food that uses only natural ingredients. It helped them build success in the 1980s and is even more relevant in the 21st century. They make their sandwiches on-site on the day they are sold, this ensures their freshness. Wherever possible the company uses local suppliers, and their sandwiches are sold in paper-based containers as opposed to plastic. The menu is expansive, especially considering the sandwiches are made to order. Alongside seasonal options, the basic menu is available throughout the year. You’ll find an array of baguettes, ranging from brie, pistachio & cranberry to Chicken Caesar and bacon. They also offer an array of sweet treats, a huge selection of hot drinks, breakfast baguettes, and croissants, and even a dinner menu. You’ll find the complete menu online or in-store, they don’t produce takeaway menus as these are not environmentally friendly.
