Auntie Anne’s is expanding throughout the UK

Auntie Anne’s, The World’s Largest Soft Pretzel Retailer is expanding throughout the UK and is looking for franchise owners nationwide

Founded in 1988 in the USA, the home of tasty grab and go snacking, Auntie Anne’s has grown from humble beginnings in a Pennsylvanian Farmers Market to become a multinational snack food brand with over 1,200 stores and 10,000 employees making pretzels day in, day out around the world.

After selling a previous successful Master Franchise and looking for a new challenge, the franchisor sampled the product and fell in love with the pretzel, and the brand behind product. Max Burton, Auntie Anne’s UK Director of Business Development says: “There really is no other product like an Auntie Anne’s Pretzel. With over 10 sweet and savoury flavours there is something for every customer’s palate. In the UK we have been driving expansion nationwide and have many fantastic property opportunities in major shopping centres in all corners of the UK. With a large percentage of our existing network working with us to open their second stores, the business model is working and providing an excellent return on investment for our hard working franchise network.”

As a prospective franchise owner you must ask yourself “What do I want from a franchise?”

1) A hands-on business which you can enjoy.
2) A business that is part of a growing, successful franchise network.
3) A profitable, proven business model.

If these three answers are in line with your expectations then with over 1,200 stores worldwide throughout 24 countries, Auntie Anne’s UK franchise opportunity ticks the right boxes for you.

Auntie Anne’s serves a unique product consisting of sweet and savoury handmade, freshly baked pretzels created in front of the customer by your team in the store. If our pretzels are then not sold within 30 minutes of coming out of the oven they are thrown away to make sure that every customer gets only the very freshest pretzel possible.

This approach to putting the customers’ taste experience first filters through to all aspects of our business and makes Auntie Anne’s a unique offering in the both the UK snack food market and indeed the UK franchise market. This franchise is not for the faint hearted as it requires commitment to outstanding customer service, the ability to manage a team and ambition to grow sales seven days a week. For the right franchise owners, however, Auntie Anne’s is an outstanding opportunity to become part of an exciting, growing franchise team within which 60 per cent of the current network is looking to open their second location.
