The chain, which already has restaurants in Chicago, New York, and Washington, is looking at dozens of locations around the Boston area, according to city officials.

“Since the doors opened in our first shop, the principle that fresh, natural ingredients are both better tasting and better for you has been a basic tenet of the Pret philosophy,” Martin Bates, president of Pret A Manger US, said in a statement. “We couldn’t think of a better backdrop to mark the milestone of our 50th US opening, and we look forward to delivering delicious, high-quality food to this great city.”
