A&W signs deal to launch trial of Pret A Manger channel in Canada – Business News – .


A&W Revenue Royalties Income Fund said it has reached an agreement in principle with UK chain Pret A Manger to bring the sandwich and coffee chain to Canada.

During the two-year trial phase, A&W Foodservice Operation plans to add Pret items to its restaurants in select markets across Canada.

If the pilot project is successful, A&W would receive the exclusive franchise rights to expand the Pret brand across the country.

Details of exclusive rights are subject to negotiation and approval by the A&W Board.

The A&W fund receives royalties equal to three percent of the gross sales of the 994 A&W restaurants in the royalty pool. The royalty would also apply to Pret products sold in restaurants.

Pret A Manger, which opened in London, offers sandwiches, salads and wraps, as well as organic coffee. There are over 450 stores in the UK, US and several other countries.
