JAB acquires Pret A Manger

JAB, which owns companies including Jacobs Douwe Egberts, is acquiring sandwich chain Pret A Manger from private equity firm Bridgepoint. The first Pret A Manger, which sells fresh sandwiches, salads and wraps, was opened in London in 1986. The company currently has 530 stores worldwide in countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Hong Kong and France. The first location in the Netherlands was opened last year at Utrecht Central Station.


JAB, the investment company of the German family Reimann, invests in companies that have premium brands in consumer products. It has majority stakes in companies including Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Panera Bread, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Caribou Coffee Company and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. JAB is also the largest shareholder in Coty and a minority shareholder in Reckitt Benckiser.
