UK sandwich and coffee shop chain Pret a Manger will open its second site in Dubai later this month as it continues to expand its international operations.

The Dubai Mall opening comes almost two years after Pret launched its first shop in the Middle East at Dubai International Airport.

The company opened two outlets in Copenhagen Airport last week, with new stores scheduled to open in the Netherlands later this year.

Pret is present in six other countries outside the UK, with France being its second biggest market with 12 shops.

Michael Haley, partnerships director at Pret, said: “Our freshly prepared, good natural food and organic coffee have been well received by Pret customers at Dubai International Airport and I’m delighted to announce that we will soon be opening in The Dubai Mall.

“Our passionate, hard-working new team have been training in Pret shops around the world, and we will soon be serving fresh breakfast, lunch and evening dishes from the kitchen of our new shop alongside sweet treats and coffees.”

The 21 February Dubai opening is being made in partnership with Emirates Leisure retail, a subsidiary of the Emirates Group, owner of Emirates Airline.

All of Pret’s traditional food and drink products will be available at the store, where daily operating hours will 10 am to midnight.

“Pret is a brand with real heart and soul renowned for fresh, natural, quality food,” said Kevin Zajax, Emirates Leisure Retail chief operating officer.

“Our first downtown store in Dubai Mall will have an expanded food offer, allowing residents and tourists to choose their dining experience – from morning handcrafted coffee on the go, to a lunchtime respite savouring one of Pret’s best-loved sandwich creations, to evening al fresco dining overlooking the iconic Burj Khalifa fountains.”
