Pret a Manger has launched a monthly subscription service offering up to five drinks a day for £20 a month.

The coffee and sandwich chain's subscription service could mean that you get coffee for as little as 13.3p a cup.

Pret a Manger will be hoping that the service will increase customer numbers after low footfall in city centres saw it axe 2,800 roles last week.

What have Pret said?

Briony Raven, UK Food & Coffee Director at Pret, said:

"Subscription services like Netflix and Spotify have played a big part in keeping us positive throughout lockdown and after seeing on social media how excited customers were to be reunited with their favourite Pret drinks, we’ve been inspired to launch our own - in a very Pret way.

"Not only is YourPret Barista incredible value and something that has not been done in the UK before, it’s also a chance to enjoy and celebrate the huge range of drinks our expert baristas offer every day.”
