Give me Pret over scruffy looking offices or derelict empty buildings any day. Of course it would be ideal to have greater variety and independents, but no-one else is taking a chance on BHS so I for one welcome Pret!
Riva by Borough Tube does far superior sandwiches and hot food. Always service with a smile and a nice family run business. Ditto the Giggling Sausage in Great Suffolk Street and also the Blackfriars Cafe. No connections, I just like a proper mug of tea!
Prêt à Manger is french for 'ready to eat'
As of January 2012, there were 230 UK shops, 168 in London.
Unlike many other fast food outlets, Pret a Manger refuses to franchise.
Pret a Manger promotes an internal culture as described in a leaflet entitled “Pret Behaviours.”
Team Members should practise around six Behaviours, Managers ten, and the company’s executives should be able to practise all of them
