Pret A Manger
Pret A Manger are a sandwich chain who have many stores located within shopping centres and transport hubs around the UK. They first made a presence on the motorway at Welcome Break's site at South Mimms in August 2016.
In December 2017, Roadchef teamed up with Pret A Manger opening a store at Chester. This was followed by a store at Clacket Lane westbound in March 2018. Both Roadchef's stores closed in early 2020, leaving only the one Welcome Break store.
In October 2020, Pret A Manger announced that they would be working with a third operator, Moto. This would see stores open at Cherwell Valley and Rugby over the winter. These were deemed a success and further openings are planned.
Moto promoted Pret as being a response to requests for more healthy eating options on the motorway, while Pret said they had wanted to explore new locations as the Coronavirus pandemic was going to affect their business model. They also announced a partnership with MFG's forecourts.
Pret A Manger can be found at three service areas:
