Pret A Manger to open first shop in Northern Ireland

Pret A Manger is to open its first shop in Northern Ireland next week.

Due to launch on 7 December, the shop on Belfast’s Donegall Square West will be Pret’s fifth on the island of Ireland.

It will work with a number of local Northern Irish suppliers and will sell Pret’s menu of organic coffees and other drinks, as well as sandwiches, salads and hot food. At the end of each day, surplus food will be donated to its local charity partner, Welcome Organisation, via The Pret Foundation.

Clare Clough, UK and Ireland managing director at Pret A Manger, said: “Our first Northern Ireland shop is a huge moment for Pret. We know the community in Belfast have long been calling out for a local Pret shop, so to be opening in the heart of the city brings us a lot of joy.”

Pret is opening the store with its longstanding franchise partner Carebrook which has overseen the success of many shops in London, including Camden, Belsize Park and Finchley.

Clough added: “We are delighted to be working with our longstanding franchise partners Carebrook, who have a proven track record of excellence operating Pret shops in the UK and Northern Ireland. We’ve got big plans to keep growing in Ireland and look forward to bringing our freshly made food and organic coffees to new customers across Belfast.”

Pret plans to have 20 stores on the island of Ireland within the next decade. The company now operates in 16 markets and expects to have 700 shops worldwide by the end of 2023.

Earlier this year, Pret announced that its half year revenue grew by 20.2% to £429.9 million compared to the same period in 2022.
