So, Pret maybe coming to Ipswich and might be at the Grimwades building on the corner of the Cornhill.Excuse the romanised version using only the Latin alphabet characters. What does Pret a Manger mean? Pret a Manger is french for "ready to eat". The story goes it was inspired by a clothing brand called Pret a Porter ("ready to wear"). Pret is also Romanian for "price". If we can trust Google Translate... "hosts" in Albanian, "fun" in Afrikaans and Dutch, "rod" in Polish and "turd" in Turkish. It doesn't mean punch a manager or "away in a manger".Is it upmarket?No, it is just a mass-market competitor to Greggs.
