Target Gets Healthier and More Vegetarian-Friendly

The second-largest discount retailer opens its first store to serve vegetarian-friendly Pret A Manger food.

Typically, Target customers expect fast food restaurants inside the store to serve items such as pizza or tacos, but Chicago’s newest store “CityTarget” will serve more veg-friendly and healthful fare. UK-based food chain Pret A Manger will start serving Target patrons in the new downtown location next week. Some of Chicago's Pret A Manger vegetarian menu items include: Mediterranean Lentil Soup, Falafel and Red Peppers Wrap, and Organic Steel-Cut Oatmeal. While Pret is not exclusively vegetarian, it only endorses food free of preservatives and antibiotics, and uses exclusively cage-free eggs. There are roughly 265 Pret A Manger restaurants worldwide.
