It's been a long time coming to Dubai...
Finally, finally, British food brand Pret A Manger will be making its Dubai debut and despite saying that that they would never franchise their brand, it appears that hands were shaken with ELR (Emirates Leisure Retail) to seal the deal. Due to open later this year, the popular chain, with a loyal fan following all over the globe, is sure to please expats who are familiar with the vast range of fresh sandwiches, soups, baked goods and organic coffee that’s made fresh on the premises daily. However, there is one catch; you’ll have to be flying out or transiting through Dubai on any other airline than Emirates, as it will only be open airside at Terminal 1.
Pret A Manger CEO, Clive Schlee said of the developments “The UAE is a brand new territory for us, and with Dubai International now the busiest international airport in the world, we believe the new shop will present an exciting opportunity for Pret.
"Our airside shop, with its large on-site kitchen, will offer the best of Pret's menu to passengers as they transit through the terminal, or stay and enjoy our comfortable seating area between flights.
"We've worked hard to source the best quality ingredients for our new menu, and look forward to hearing what customers think when we open later this year."
