On April 26, 2016, Booming 150-Plus Unit Philly-Style Pretzel Franchise Gives All Guests Pretzels

PHILADELPHIA - April 25, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Being "salty" usually has a negative connotation but not on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 –National Pretzel Day. For the ninth year, Philly Pretzel Factory will be giving away one pretzel to every guest who comes through its doors in celebration of National Pretzel Day. The first 100 fans in line also receive a card to redeem for a pretzel every day during the month of May.

This year, with the Philadelphia presidential primary landing on the same celebrated day, Philly Pretzel Factory decided to celebrate by creating specialized pretzels in the shape of top presidential candidates: Donald Trump,Hilary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz.
"We look forward to National Pretzel Day every year. It allows us to celebrate our hero item and to show our appreciation to our loyal fans who have been enjoying our fresh baked pretzels for 18 years," said Dan DiZio, CEO and co-founder of Philly Pretzel Factory. "We are even more excited to unveil our #PretzelPrimary Facebook campaign for social media lovers to share and like images of the presidential candidate pretzels."

National Pretzel Day began in 1983 when Philadelphia Rep. Robert S. Walkerdeclared his favorite food was deserving of its own holiday. In April 2003,Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26th National Pretzel Day to honor and recognize the importance of the treat to the state's rich history of German immigrants.
