Pret A Manger to open first store in Northern Ireland

Pret A Manger is to open its first shop in Northern Ireland later this year.

The shop in Belfast city centre will be operated by Pret’s longstanding franchise partner, Carebrook Partnership.

The food-to-go brand is planning to launch 20 shops on the island of Ireland within the next decade. It has already opened three shops in Dublin in the Republic of Ireland in the last 18 months.

Clare Clough, UK and Ireland managing director at Pret A Manger, said: “We’re delighted to be opening Pret’s first-ever shop in Northern Ireland as part of our ambitious plans to bring Pret to more people. We’ve long heard that Belfast locals and visitors would love to have a Pret, so we can’t wait to welcome them to our new shop right in the heart of the city with our longstanding franchise partner Carebrook, who has had much success operating Pret shops in the UK and on the island of Ireland”.

Pret now operates in 15 markets on three continents and expects to have over 700 shops worldwide by the end of 2023.

Earlier this year, Pret announced that half year revenue in 2023 grew by 20.2% to £429.9 million. A key driver of the growth was international sales which now account for 18.9% of Pret’s revenue.
