Pret A Manger will soon be opening the doors to its first Veggie Pret shop outside of London following hundreds of customer requests on social media asking the company to open Veggie Prets in more cities.
Since it’s inception in 2016, the success of Veggie Pret has continued to grow, and now Pret A Manger has officially opened the doors to its fourth vegetarian-only shop, and this time it’s not in London!
The brand new Veggie Pret shop will open in Manchester on Deansgate with a shiny new menu (which will launch in Veggie Pret shops in London at the same time).
The Veggie Pret concept has been so popular with customers has inspired Pret to launch more vegetarian and vegan dishes in all Pret shops. In fact, more than half of the range of sandwiches and salads in regular Pret shops were vegetarian or vegan in 2017, and Pret’s vegan sweet treats (such as the vegan Dark Chocolate & Almond Butter cookie) are some of the company’s bestselling products.
The menu in Manchester will also include Veggie Pret favourites (many of which are exclusive to Veggie Pret), such as Pret’s vegan take on macaroni cheese.
Customers can tuck into the Vegan Mac & Greens (£5.50), a warming, comforting mac & cheese that’s completely vegan! Tubetti rigati pasta and cauliflower florets are mixed with Pret’s vegan béchamel sauce. Pret then adds spinach, parsley, a sprinkling of breadcrumbs and a drizzle of olive oil and rapeseed oil.
If you fancy something to grab and go then the Chakalaka Wrap (£2.99) is sure to hit the spot. Filled with spicy chakalaka beans with red pepper, roasted butternut squash and baby spinach and finished with a dollop of dairy-free coconut yoghurt, this makes for a flavoursome and tasty lunch option.
Speaking about the launch of the new eatery, Hannah Dolan, Head of Food Development at Pret, comments, “When we asked customers on social media where they’d like to see the next Veggie Pret, Manchester was the top request. We’re delighted to be able to reveal today that the city is our next location.
“Veggie Pret is still growing and the future is looking as green as ever. We want customers to keep telling us what they think – and where they’d like to see Veggie Pret next.”
You can find the new Veggie Pret at 79-81 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 2BW
