On National Pretzel Day, Philly Pretzel Factory will celebrate its fans by giving away pretzels for the eleventh consecutive year. With more than 170 locations, the nation’s largest Philly-style pretzel brand is expecting to distribute more than 50,000 pretzels this year.
On Thursday, April 26, Philly Pretzel Factory will offer a pretzel to every guest who enters the store in honor of the national holiday! Furthermore, the first 100 customers at each location will receive a coupon for a free pretzel each day in May. Pretzel-rama!
I was excited to learn more so I sent some questions over to PPF President Marty Ferrill to get the low down on their big day:
Philly Grub: Is Philly Pretzel Factory doing a special pretzel or promotion for National Pretzel Day?
Marty Ferrill: Yes, we’re giving away one free pretzel to everyone who walks through our doors at traditional and Walmart locations on Thursday, April 26th.
PG: How many pretzels does PPF expect to give away on National Pretzel Day?
MF: We are planning to give away more than 50,000 pretzels on our favorite holiday.
PG: How many locations does PPF have now?
MF: We currently have 170 locations open, from Massachusetts to Florida and out west to Nevada.
PG: Are there any new menu items in development or planned to be rolled out in 2018?
MF: We have a research and development team constantly in the test kitchen. There’s nothing we can talk about just yet, but we are huge fans of our mini pretzel dogs.
PG: Anything else newsworthy worth mentioning?
MF: This is a very special year for us. It’s our 20th Anniversary! We’ll also be opening new locations and expanding across the U.S. in states like Florida and Texas.
It doesn’t get any more Philly than a soft pretzel so get to a Philly Pretzel Factory location near you EARLY on Thursday, April 26th to make sure you get one!
