Auntie Anne’s has opened three new franchises, taking its number of stores in the UK to 22.

The US-based franchise has opened stores in Luton, Croydon and most recently in Peterborough. All these stores offer the full range of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels that include a number of sweet and savoury flavours.

Robert Burton, MD UK & Ireland, said: “It’s clear that like thousands in the UK and across the world new customers at these premium shopping centres are enjoying our fresh and tasty pretzels. With this latest opening we are proud to be in the very prestigious Queensgate Shopping Centre alongside many other premium retail brands, our fifth store in the UK with Hammerson, the landlord for Queensgate. We hope that our customers continue to visit us when they want a great quality, delicious freshly made snack.”

The franchise owners at Peterborough, Robert and Margaret Granicz, have invested in and opened the new franchise, and have hired nine new staff from the local area. This Auntie Anne’s franchise is their second and they have already committed to a third store in Birmingham.

The franchise owner in Luton, Titilola Balogun, already owns and operates the very successful existing store in The Harlequin, Watford, and is looking to expand to a third store. Her sister Tola Olorunshola opened the Croydon Auntie Anne’s store, supported by her brother Dele.
