Pret has said it will open more of its branches again after finding a way to operate safely during the coronavirus outbreak.
The chain launched a trial with 10 branches openine on April 16, and now thinks it is ready to triple that number.
“We recently reopened 10 shops close to hospitals and restarted food donations to our charity partners,” Pret chief executive Pano Christou said.
“I believe we’ve found a way to operate that reflects Government guidance and looks after our teams and customers.”
And that means, form tomorrow, another 20 stores will be opening for takeaway and delivery.
Pret has around 400 stores in the UK, which were closed on March 21.
Christou also said he plans to make sure the community benefits too.
“I’m also pleased to say that we are extending our 50% discount for NHS workers until 15th May and will of course be ensuring our unsold food goes to even more of our charity partners,” he said.
