Wetzel's Pretzels to Debut New Street Concept Twisted by Wetzel’s This Spring

Wetzel’s Pretzels Gives Treasured Pretzel Legacy a New Twist with Imaginative Menu & Modern Design at Neighborhood Storefront Locations

April 13, 2023 // Franchising.com // PASADENA, Calif. - Get ready for a profoundly historic pretzel innovation in the baking. Wetzel’s Pretzels (Wetzel’s) is putting the perfect twist on pretzels with the introduction of Twisted by Wetzel’s, a never-before-seen street concept that takes Wetzel’s fun-loving brand and timeless menu and elevates it to a whole new level.

Twisted by Wetzel’s satisfies today’s millennial and Gen Z generations through an expansive, innovative menu curated to provide an array of imaginative and elevated options. From savory to sweet, it features new creations that are stuffed, topped and drizzled to ultimate pretzel perfection. Some of Twisted’s amplified pretzel creations include:

  • Twistz - An ode to everyone’s favorite piece of the pretzel - the twist. Twisted and braided pretzel dough is stuffed with cheese and sprinkled with flavorful toppings. Select from the Pizza Bomb, Wetz Coast Club or Triple Grilled Cheese. 
  • Dogz - The all-beef Wetzel hot dog guests know and love, now elevated. Options include the Baja Boardwalk, complete withjalapeños, green onion, slaw and Cilantro Baja Sauce atop a spiral bun, as well as Wetz Coast Classic, Sriracha Soul and Everything Bacon.
  • Loaded Bitz - Wetzel’s riff on loaded fries. Sweet and savory pretzel bites drizzled and finished with inventive toppings. Try crowd pleaser S’mores Bitz - classic Bitz, smothered in rich chocolate fudge, mini marshmallows, graham cracker crunch and chocolate chips. Other options include Bacon Ranch and Baja Elote.
  • Topped Pretz - A truly tempting treat, Wetzel’s traditional full-sized pretzels are topped with surprising flavors. Options include the Nashville Heat, covered in Wetz Cheese Sauce and dusted with Nashville spice, and the Maple Bacon, with a maple glaze and crispy bacon bits, among others. 
  • Pretzel Chimney Cakes - The average ice cream cone pales in comparison to these twisted chimney cones. Our famous pretzel dough, rolled in sugar crystals and filled with creamy soft serve. Available in Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Brownie and more.
  • House-Made Drinks - Refreshing lemonades, floats and more, like the sweet and tangy Mangonada, made with real mango frozen lemonade, chili lime seasoning and enjoyed through a tamarind straw.

“Twisted by Wetzel’s embraces the magic or our core brand and elevates it to a whole new level, providing a bigger, bolder, more imaginative expression of Wetzel’s,” said Kim Freer, Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re reimagining how and where these twisty treats are enjoyed. By bringing an innovative menu and engaging in-store experience to neighborhood locations, we’re making pretzels more fun and more accessible than ever before. We’re proud to debut this new concept in our home state of California, bringing our vision of a Wetz Coast Wonderland to life.”

Bringing Wetzel’s whimsical nature to fans in convenient neighborhood locations, the store design provides guests with a vibrant, immersive, 360-degree experience. It’s bright, energetic interior matches the brand’s fun, playful persona and its open kitchen highlights its heritage of artisan craftsmanship. Twisted by Wetzel’s activates the brand’s mantra to “bring pretzels to the people” through a prototype that is suited for power shopping centers in densely populated urban, suburban and college town settings.

Serving up the ultimate California vibe, the first Twisted by Wetzel’s location will debut this spring in Orange County at 1331 W Imperial Hwy. in the La Habra Marketplace.
