Freshness with a twist! In the early fifth century, when some monks were busy inventing Shaolin Kung Fu, German monks took a vow of deliciousness and invented the pretzel. Believe it or not, they were made to mimic arms folded in prayer and used to reward small children for good deeds. Even back then, they were a hit. Flash forward a couple of centuries. That’s when we later came along and elevated the Pretzel to new dimensions of tastiness. Pretzelmaker / Pretzel Time introduced our famous soft pretzel in 1991. It was a hit. Today, we offer an awesome selection of hot, fresh-baked, fresh twisted pretzels, pretzel dogs, freshly squeezed lemonade, creamy blended drinks, and cold beverages all over the world. You can find us in over 360 locations in the U.S. and worldwide. For now-Antarctica, watch out.
