According to the Guardian today, Pret a Manger is in danger of going tits up.
I don't understand why they are introducing the brand to Canada in this way. A 2 year pilot is way too long, and they should have just opened a proper stand-alone Pret. It didn't need to be a large one with tones of seating (at least at first), and they could have easily done the smaller "grab-and-go" format, especially ay busy transit hubs. This isn't how to experience the Pret brand. Time will tell how this odd pairing works out, and how they will measure "success" in order to role out stand-alone stores across the country.
