Pret becomes takeaway-only with discounts for frontline health workers

Sandwich shop chain, Pret A Manger has made two immediate changes in its shops due to the coronavirus outbreak:

1. Pret will move to a takeaway-only model in shops. Deliveries will continue through Deliveroo, but the key priority is to try to reduce points of contact in shops, and to minimise the time it takes for people to get the food they need and leave safely and quickly.

Importantly, all surplus food will continue to be donated to the homeless at the end of each night.

2. To help frontline health workers fighting coronavirus, anyone who works for the NHS will be able to have free hot drinks at any Pret and also have 50% discount on all other purchases.
