The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A CORO­NER has recorded a ver­dict of sui­cide on Jef­frey Hy­man, the busi­ness­man who opened the orig­i­nal Pret A Manger sand­wich shop. Mr Hy­man, 67, was found dead in Jan­uary at his Lon­don home. The in­quest at North Lon­don Coro­ner’s Court heard that fol­low­ing a stroke, he had strug­gled to cope with life. He founded Pret in 1984, and later sold the busi­ness to a part­ner­ship which built it into a multi-mil­lion pound chain.
