Pret A Manger partners with Cuisine Solutions for sous vide kitchen concept

More cuisines are expected to be offered in the future.

Pret A Manger has partnered with Cuisine Solutions, which manufactures and distributes sous vide food products, to open a “dark assembly kitchen” (DAK) concept in New York City.

The idea, dubbed CS DAK, will see multiple food concepts for delivery through the major third-party delivery platforms as well as via the CS DAK website.

Fully cooked food will arrive at a Pret A Manger location in Midtown Manhattan, which will serve as the official first facility for this operation. Staff at that location will assemble the menu items and package them for delivery. It is understood that there is no from-scratch cooking involved in the process.

CS DAK will offer the following concepts:

  • Cocina Oscura and Mediterranean: Build-your-own Mexican or Mediterranean bowls, salads, and wraps
  • Poultry in Motion: Sous Vide Egg Bites and chicken dishes
  • Bodega: A high-end take on the ready-made meal
  • The Cutting Edge: A variety of high-end international dishes

Cuisine Solutions also said in its media release that customers can expect Asian, Italian, and BBQ-based sous vide concepts to join in the future.
