BigHospitality's sister site MCA understands that commercial property agents Brasier Freeth are marketing 16 Eat units, including 13 in London, with the remaining three in Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.
The London sites are on Aldersgate Street, Chancery Lane, Clapham Junction Station, St James’s, Farringdon Street, Fenchurch Street, Fetter Lane, Great Peter Street, High Holborn, Kings Road, Strutton Ground, Tottenham Court Road, Tower Hill.
Pret agreed to acquire the 90-strong business, as first revealed by MCA in May, in a deal thought to value Eat at £60m.
At the time it was estimated there was scope for around 30 of the sites to be converted into sub-brand Veggie Pret, which currently operates from four sites.
Eat CEO Andrew Walker stepped down from his role earlier this month. Mike Rainer, formerly chief financial officer, has taken the reins as Eat's managing director.
Pret declined to comment.
