Pret A Manger to bring its first university shops to the US

Three shops will open in partnership with Bon Appétit Management Company.

Pret A Manger will open two shops at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania on August 28, which will be the first Pret A Manger shops in Philadelphia, followed by one at the University of Chicago on September 14.

The shops will offer Pret’s menu of organic coffee and handmade natural food, including sandwiches, salads, wraps, baguettes and hot options. Offerings from the menu include: the Balsamic Chicken & Avocado Sandwich, Mediterranean Mezze Salad, Coconut Chicken & Miso Sweet Potato Balance Box, and Turkey, Ham & Wisconsin Cheddar Hot Baguette.

“Choosing the right partners is important for Pret and we really admire Bon Appetit’s values and operational strengths,” said Jo Brett, Pret’s U.S. President. “Our menu of freshly-made food to go is perfect for students juggling a busy academic lifestyle, and I’m sure our organic coffee will also be very popular on campus. Pret is a natural choice for students looking for fresh and nutritious food and we hope that these three new university shops are the first of many.”

Bon Appétit CEO Fedele Bauccio said, “I have long admired Pret for its fresh, flavorful menu items that can be enjoyed quickly on the go. In addition, Pret’s culinary and sourcing standards align closely with Bon Appétit’s, which will make us a great team.”
