Pret A Manger January Menu

Pret A Manger is set to grow its presence in Canada after signing ten-year development agreement with restaurant chain A&W.

The two businesses have agreed on a plan to expand the Pret brand across Canada following the completion of a successful two year trial period first announced in June 2022.

The Pret brand was first offered in a trial pop-up format in certain A&W restaurants in 2022, and expanded to a first stand alone Pret location in downtown Toronto in 2024.

The development plan will increase the number of physical locations offering Pret products across Canada over an initial ten-year development term.

A&W is Canada’s second largest hamburger restaurant company with over 1,000 locations across the country. The business currently has exclusive master franchisor rights to Canada for the Pret brand.

It says it will introduce Pret’s products to Canadian consumers in a ”variety of carefully selected formats”, beginning with a national roll out of Pret coffee in A&W restaurants this Autumn.

Meanwhile, founded in London in 1986, Pret A Manger now operates more than 650 outlets across 18 markets and is expected to open up to 150 international stores in 2024.
