Pret A Manger opens first shops in Scandinavia

The shops are due to open on the 7th and the 8th of February in partnership with HMSHost International.

Opening on the 7th of February, the first shop will be located in the main Terminal 2 check-in area, with a seating area for 160 customers. This will be joined by a second shop by the Metro station in Terminal 3 opening on the 8th of February.

Both shops will offer Pret’s menu of sandwiches, salads, wraps, baguettes, hot food, yoghurt and fruit pots, and sweet treats, alongside juices, smoothies, and organic hot drinks. The menu will include: The Posh Cheddar & Pickle Baguette, Classic Super Club Sandwich, Swedish Meatball Hot Wrap and Wild Crayfish & Avocado Salad as well as a large range of vegetarian food.

Michael Haley, director of partnerships at Pret, said, “Finding a quick, fresh and nutritious meal while travelling can often be difficult, and we’re pleased we can now play a part in making it even easier for passengers travelling through Copenhagen Airport. Opening for the first time in Scandinavia is an exciting move for us and it gives us a great opportunity to introduce delicious Danish bacon into some of our recipes for the first time.”

Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International said, “We are excited to start this important partnership with Pret A Manger. Pret is known for its responsible approach to doing business and its focus on local communities. We share a similar vision, as we are focused on sustainability, food quality, freshness and innovation.”

The Terminal 2 shop will be open 24/7 and the shop by the Metro station in Terminal 3 will be open daily from 4.30am-10pm. The shops will be operated by HMSHost International. The two openings have created more than 55 new jobs.
