About this FranchiseAuntie Anne's has been "pretzel perfect" since 1988, when "Auntie" Anne Beiler and her husband, Jonas purchased a farmers market stand in Pennsylvania and experimented with a soft pretzel recipe.The result was a delicious treat that would be enjoyed by many. Auntie Anne's opened its first franchise location in 1989 and have added a variety of new pretzel flavors, dipping sauces, and beverage products since then. Thanks to the fresh, hot, hand-rolled soft pretzels and strong business model, the company has more than 1,500 stores today.
