United Kingdom-based Pret A Manger is set to launch its first shop in India after announcing its partnership with Reliance Brands Limited (RBL) last year.
Opening its doors to the public on 21 April in Maker Maxity, Mumbai, it will be the first of many shops set to open later this year.
“We are thrilled to be opening the first Pret A Manger shop in India. Freshness of ingredients, authenticity of recipes, and a curiosity in processes defines the new Indian consumer. Our partnership with Pret A Manger aims to tap into this curiosity with an offering that we can proudly say ensures traceability of coffee beans as much as a zero additive approach to food,” says Darshan Mehta, Managing Director of RBL.
Pret’s drinks menu offers a range of brews, including the classic Espresso. Customers can also choose from a variety of non-dairy milk options such as almond, oat, and coconut to customise their coffee order at no extra cost.
“We have been working closely with the RBL team to create an offer for Indian consumers that reflects the Pret brand, while also adapting to local preferences and food habits. People will recognise some of our freshly prepared lunch-time classics, our delicious croissants and 100 per cent organic Arabica coffee,” says Pano Christou, CEO of Pret A Manger.
“Coming to India has been a goal of ours for a long time, and the opening of our first shop in Mumbai is a landmark moment in our international expansion plans. We’re confident that with the support of RBL, the Pret brand will be a hit with consumers in India, and a welcome addition to the country’s growing food-to-go market.”
The new Pret A Manger store will be open every day from 8:30am to 11.30pm.
