Grand Openings at Iconic Locations Build on Company's Strong Q1 Growth
PASADENA, CA - (Marketwired - Jun 8, 2016) - Wetzel's Pretzels, the innovator in the fresh-baked pretzel category, today announced store openings at two iconic locations, Minnesota-based Mall of America and Manhattan's Fulton Center. Both locations will offer Wetzel's full menu of signature hot and fresh items, including Original Pretzels, Wetzel Bitz and Wetzel Dogs, along with customer-favorite fresh and frozen lemonades.

About Wetzel's Pretzels
Armed with a vision and a tasty recipe for soft pretzel perfection, Bill Phelps and Rick Wetzel opened the first Wetzel's Pretzels bakery in Redondo Beach, Calif., in 1994. Long lines of hungry customers soon formed, attracted by mouth-watering soft pretzels that were hand-rolled, baked fresh and served hot from the oven. As word spread about these golden-on-the-outside pretzels, the company added additional offerings to its menu. Today, Wetzel's Pretzels has grown to more than 300 fresh bakeries across the United States and around the world, including premier locations at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Every Wetzel's Pretzels bakery adheres to the original vision of its founders; that each super-premium pretzel will be crafted from fresh dough and baked in-store consistently throughout the day, to ensure a delicious offering for each consumer, regardless of when the craving for a pretzel strikes.
