I rather unfairly voted Greggs as I have never been to Pret. :sweat_smile:

Pret is national. Also, many have suggested preference is the real north south divide.

Pret is national, but there are large parts of the country that don’t have any, or only one. Myself being in the North of England only has the one store in Newcastle to visit, and I wouldn’t go there just for Pret.

So fairly aligned with population density?

Personally I don’t understand the love for Greggs. A shit coffee and a processed microwaved sausage roll is hardly appealing.

I guess offering a piece of fruit as part of the deal would be significantly more expensive than offering other processed matter.

That’s not really accurate, there are a lot more Greggs in the south than Prets


nowt in Greggs is microwaved !!! its all oven baked, and all the sarnies are made in store

And its better than the pretentious crap at Pret…

Bleedin Southerners lol

Probably, but there are still a large proportion of the population that doesn’t have a Pret anywhere near them, which makes any Pret perk a bit pointless for them.

Where I live (in the South East) we have 3 Greggs stores and one Pret in Town.

It’s not supposed to be accurate, it’s a meme.

I don’t love love Gregg’s but they are far easier to find. I’m in the south east and my nearest Pret is 10 miles away. There are three Gregg’s in my town alone, god knows how many more in the 10 miles.

So while I would’ve loved a Pret treat I would never be able to bloomin redeem it.

(I haven’t moved to a new tier so my opinion on Gregg’s treats doesn’t really matter)

I think Gail’s can beat both Pret and Greggs

Hey is Scotland not included in the Greggs debate?

I live in the south and wouldn’t touch Pret with a barge pole. Overpriced pretentious shite. Greggs isn’t a health food but it’s decently priced honest stuff.

Aren’t Pret the ones who were killing people with their food?
