    Pret a Manger has announced further details about the opening of its first two sandwich shops in Brussels later this year.

    The company is partnering with Belgium’s national railway company, SNCB/NMBS, and SSP, which operates food and beverage outlets in airports and stations, to open two stores in Brussels. The two locations will be at Brussels Midi Station and Brussels Central Station.

    The shops will feature a range of sandwiches, wraps, salads, and pastries along with smoothies, coffee, and tea.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served, and there will also be vegan and vegetarian options available.

    Sam the Horse-Zebra will remain in the Midi station in front of the new Pret a Manger shop. The Midi mascot proved so popular that a petition against his removal eventually gathered more than 1,000 signatures, and swayed Pret towards letting him stay.
