Auntie Anne's sells a range of sweet and savoury, freshly baked Pretzels from shopping centre-based retail locations.

Our major USP is the freshness of the Pretzels which are baked on the premises. This makes Auntie Anne's almost unique in the UK market place and creates a Pretzel bakery wherever we open. When our customers walk into their shopping centre it's the freshly baked aroma that gently draws them in and with our high quality and eye catching design, they cannot help but try one of our exciting sweet or savoury flavours including cinnamon, vanilla, almond crunch, jalapeno, original salted, cheese and pepperoni.
