Pret is well known in the UK but it’s also becoming a big player across the pond. With its first store in New York opening in 2000 its now spread to 4 major cities. There are a few differences with Pret in the USA but the mission is the same. “To create, handmade, natural food, avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the ‘prepared’ and ‘fast’ food on the market today.essentially the philosophy behind Pret is the same”

As I have taken many of the lifestyle images Pret uses in store and on their website they decided it would be best if the style was carried through to the US side of Pret. So I had the very enviable job of flying out to the states for a week to capture the distinctive feel of ‘Pret America’ through the architecture, landmarks, street life and also the wonderful staff they have.
