Pret A Manger to launch shops in UK's motorways

It partners with Roadchef to bring its first shop at Chester Motorway Service Area before Christmas.

The menu will include a large selection of Pret’s freshly-made sandwiches, salads, wraps, baguettes and hot options, alongside organic coffees, teas, cold drinks, fruit and snacks.

This partnership is part of Roadchef’s drive to offer the UK’s travelling public a wider choice that mirrors the diversity found on the high street.

Pret's CEO Clive Schlee said, “Pret’s fast service is perfect for busy travellers, and we are looking forward to increasing our presence on motorways in the UK. Our shops will obviously have their own kitchens on the premises, which ensures that our food will be freshly prepared throughout the day.”

Roadchef's CEO Simon Turl said, “This announcement is part of our continued commitment and investment in providing a diverse offering to visitors using our sites. Renowned for its high quality menu, Pret is an instantly recognisable brand that will be a great addition to our sites and we’re delighted to be bringing its fantastic range of food and hot drinks to the motorway.”

The second site will open at Clacket Lane West MSA on the M25 between junction 5 and 6 in the spring of 2018.
