Veggie Pret reopens this week & launches delivery with Deliveroo

Veggie Pret is to launch delivery for the first time this week, in partnership with Deliveroo. Shops in London and Manchester will reopen on Thursday 11 June, after being closed throughout the pandemic.

All ten Veggie Pret shops will reopen for takeaway, with new safety and social distancing measures in place and a reduced menu of their vegan and vegetarian favourites. Seven of the ten shops, including the Manchester location, will offer deliveries for the first time by Deliveroo’s fleet of riders.

The reopening of Veggie Pret means that bestsellers, such as the exclusive Vegan Classics range, including the Vegan Eggless Mayo & Cress baguette, the Vegan Chuna Mayo baguette and the VLT are available for delivery for the first time, as Deliveroo customers look for more vegan and vegetarian options.

Clare Clough, UK Managing Director of Pret A Manger, said, ‘We are excited to be reopening all 10 of our Veggie Pret shops this week. We know that many of our customers are working from home and missing their plant-based favourites, so partnering with Deliveroo means that more customers can access our extensive veggie and vegan menu.

‘I want to thank the amazing teams who are re-opening our Veggie Pret shops – we couldn’t do it without your support.’

Tom Peters, Global Director of Health at Deliveroo, said, ‘We're delighted to be partnering with Veggie Pret as their exclusive delivery partner.

|At Deliveroo we've seen a 181% increase in the number of healthy orders on the platform over the past three years and specifically an increase in demand for more plant-based options, both from our vegan customers and our customers simply wanting to cut down on their meat intake.

'The extensive Veggie Pret menu of veggie and vegan friendly items really caters to this, and we're here to deliver it to customers' doors in London and Manchester.’

Veggie Pret was born in 2016, after conversations with customers around how Pret could offer more delicious vegetarian options. Three new locations opened in early 2020, while the company made its biggest ever change to the menu. 19 new items were added, including vegan Poké Bowls and vegan Smoothie Bowls.

This week also sees the further reopening of Pret shops around the country. On Monday 8 June, several shops situated in railway stations, such as King’s Cross, Manchester Piccadilly and Leeds will open for takeaway. From the 15 June, several shops located in shopping centres around the country will begin to open.
