In 2002, McDonald's reached an agreement to acquire a minority interest in Pret A Manger. Founders Julian Metcalfe and Sinclair Beecham said, "Since opening the first Pret A Manger in 1986, we have been obsessed with selling good natural food to people who are in a rush at lunchtime. After 14 years, we are fortunate to have thousands of loyal customers in the U.K. and many visitors who have urged us to open Pret A Manger abroad. But to do this, we need a huge amount of support. Every new country will be an enormous challenge."

Pret A Manger is recognised as a leader in customer service and staff motivation.

Sinclair is currently involved in developing a new up-market budget hotel concept. This hotel is intended to be the first in a chain of high quality, limited service hotels. The hotel is aimed primarily at the business market but its offering is also likely to appeal to weekend leisure customers.
