Pret A Manger is set to open the doors to a second outlet for Uxbridge, West London, on 16 March.
The shop, located at Uxbridge’s indoor shopping centre The Pavilions, will feature two floors of internal seating for around 100 customers and free Wi-Fi. Pret’s menu of sandwiches, baguettes, salads, snacks, hot food and sweet treats will be on offer and all fresh items will be made daily in the onsite shop kitchen.
The shop’s Baristas, Aleksandra and Alex, along with the Front of House team, led by Cristina, will be on hand to serve a range of organic teas, coffees and hot chocolates, alongside freshly made smoothies and frappes.
Ela, General Manager at the new shop, has worked at Pret for 11 years, most recently leading the shop on Uxbridge High Street. She said, “Our fantastic team are so excited to open the doors to Uxbridge’s second Pret A Manger to meet our new customers.
“To celebrate the new shop, we’re going to open for a sneak peek this Thursday 15th March from 12.00pm. The first 400 customers through the door will receive lunch on us!”
The lunch will consist of a salad, sandwich, baguette or wrap, a dessert or snack, a cold drink and a barista prepared hot drink. Full details of the event can be found here – www.pret.co.uk/freelunch.
As part of Pret’s commitment to help alleviate the pressures of homelessness in the UK, The Pavilions shop is on the look-out for local charities to donate unsold food to at the end of each day. Over the past year, Pret’s national scheme has distributed over three million food items to homeless charities, hostels and shelters across the UK.
Juanita Cracchiolo, Pret Foundation Trust Project Manager, commented, “We’re currently looking for local charities to support through food donations each night, and would love to be contacted by any organisations who feel they could benefit from collecting fresh, unsold food from us in the evenings.”
