Pret on the go

Pret express

PRET A Manger has launched a self-service trial for its new coffee-to-go solution.

Running in partnership with Jacob Douwe Egberts (JDE) Peet’s, the Pret Express trial sees self-service coffee machines roll out to workplaces and convenience stores.

The machines offer a selection of 21 tea and coffee drinks currently available in Pret’s retail sites.

Guy Meakin, UK trading director for Pret A Manger, said: “This is new territory for Pret, which will allow more people across the country to enjoy Pret’s organic coffee and tea on the go, in places where there isn’t the right space to set up a new Pret shop.”

Sarah Lonorgan, marketing director professional UK&I for JDE Peet’s, said: “Through this innovative partnership, Pret Express will deliver a wider range of products across all out-of-home segments, to a broader audience than ever before.”
