The change means the average base pay for shop employees has increased by 19 percent in the year to April.

Average entry-level pay also increased by 15 percent year on year to more than £12, including the brand’s Mystery Shopper Bonus.

The raise will be applied to all shop employees, regardless of age, though some exceptions may apply depending on role, experience, and location.

Pret A Manger UK & Ireland interim managing director, Guy Meakin said: “We’re proud to be making another significant investment in our people’s success and wellbeing.
