Auntie Anne's Honored with the Restaurant Neighbor Award

Auntie Anne's Recognized by Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association

April 18, 2014 // Franchising.com // Lancaster, Pa. - Auntie Anne's, Inc., the world's largest franchisor of hand-rolled soft pretzels, was recently named the Pennsylvania state winner for the Restaurant Neighbor Award.

The Restaurant Neighbor Award is presented by the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation to a restaurant or company for its outstanding community service programs or projects. Auntie Anne's was recognized with this award because of its work with charitable partners, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and The First Tee.

"We're thankful to the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association awards committee for honoring us with this prestigious award," said Bill Dunn, President and Chief Operating Officer of Auntie Anne's. "As a company founded with the purpose of giving back, we're proud to continue that vision twenty-six years later through our charitable efforts with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and The First Tee."

Since forming a national charitable partnership with ALSF in September 2011, the company has raised more than one million dollars for childhood cancer research through in-store fundraising campaigns, coin canisters, local pretzel rolling contests, and Auntie Anne's C.A.R.E.S. Charity Golf Tournament. In a continued effort to fund cures for childhood cancer, Auntie Anne's will be launching its third annual fundraising campaign in stores this summer.

Auntie Anne's and The First Tee, a youth development organization that provides educational programs using the game of golf as a platform, partnered in 2013. Auntie Anne's hopes to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs by aiding in the teaching of career development and community leadership through its annual Leaders & Entrepreneurs Forum.
