Pret A Manger

350 5th Avenue, 18th Floor, New York, NY 10118

Pret opened in London in 1986. College friends, Sinclair and Julian, made proper sandwiches avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the ‘prepared’ and ‘fast’ food on the market today. The two of them had woefully little experience in the world of business. They created the sort of food they craved but couldn’t find anywhere else. In the last 30 years, we’ve continued to grow cautiously. Today, we have over 450 Prets worldwide with shops in the UK, USA, Paris, Hong Kong and Shanghai. We serve more than 300,000 customers every day, all of them looking to enjoy our fresh, healthy menu. We have good jobs for good people and we’re looking for more to join our team. We’re determined never to forget that our wonderful hardworking people make all the difference.

ESG/Ethical Impact

Doing the right thing’ is one of Pret’s core values, so it’s no surprise that we take sustainability very seriously, from our recipes and packaging, to our shops and supply chain. We’ve come a long way and still have further to go, but rising to the challenge is the right thing to do. We’ll continue to share our sustainability journey and, as always, would love to hear your thoughts on how we can do more. Since setting up The Pret Coffee Fund in 2014, we’ve been building long term relationships with our farmers and sharing sustainable farming practices. Together with the Cenfrocafe Cooperative in Peru, we have designed a course to educate, inspire and support the next generation of coffee farmers, helping them to build a sustainable business through coffee farming. We’re proud to have had a zero landfill policy for all of our managed UK shops, which has been in place since 2012. Our customers have been able to recycle bottles and cans in shops since 2007 and back-of-house recycling is a top focus for our Team Members today. Outside of Pret shops, in 2019 we financially supported and participated in community action programmes, like Leeds by Example, the Glasgow Cup Movement, Edinburgh’s In the Loop, Refill and the Cup Recycling Scheme. We have made a global commitment to make the following three changes to our plastic packaging use by 2025: 1. Make it 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable Our long-term ambition is to move to an easily recyclable, plastic-free sandwich pack, made entirely from paper and cardboard. Some plastics, like films, are trickier to recycle but we are working to find innovative solutions. 2. Eliminate all unnecessary single-use plastic We have started removing unnecessary single-use plastic globally. Plastic knives, forks, teaspoons, and straws are no longer welcome in Pret shops and we’re constantly seeking out new solutions for other pesky plastics, like our coffee cup lids. 3. Help customers to recycle effectively in our shops. We’re also working with waste management companies, industry partners and government organisations to support improvements to waste collection and recycling. New recycling bins and signage are being trialled in our shops to make recycling easy peasy for our busy customers.
