Music and free coffee as Pret A Manger opens

Music and free coffee were the order of the day when Pret A Manger launched a three-day weekend celebrating the opening of its new shop in Crawley.

Shoppers queued for a free coffee at the bandstand today (Friday September 20) while listening to a jazz band.

The sandwich chain has opened in The Martletts, creating 20 new jobs.

There will be free coffee in Queens Square again on Saturday and Sunday (September 21 and 22) from 11am-3pm.

Davide Fabriani, general manager of Pret Crawley, said: “We’re proud to be opening a Pret shop in Crawley and look forward becoming part of the thriving community.

“The Pret Crawley team is excited about meeting its new customers and celebrating with them at our three-day opening event this weekend.”
