Veggie Pret is opening two new locations in London today on St Mary Axe and King William Street, bringing the total number of Veggie Pret to 10.
Both shops are based in The City and follow the opening of a site in Cardinal Place, Victoria earlier this month and add to a list of existing shops with more openings planned for the next few months.
From humble beginnings as a pop-up on Broadwick Street in London in 2016, Pret a Manger opened its first Veggie Pret in 2017 in response to customers’ demand for more vegetarian and vegan options. Veggie Pret only sells a range of vegetarian and vegan menu items, many of which are exclusive to Veggie Pret.
Last year saw the number of Veggie Pret grow from four to seven, with locations in both London and Manchester. The company also introduced ‘The Vegan Classics’, four plant-based versions of some of Pret’s best selling ‘classic’ sandwiches, baguettes and wraps: The VLT, The Vegan Chuna Mayo baguette, The Vegan Eggless Mayo & Cress baguette and The Vegan Hoisin Mushroom Wrap.
Other notable launches have included Pret A Manger’s first vegan cookies, a roll out of 250 water fountains where anyone can refill for free as well as the launch of vegan croissants.
