Philly Pretzel Factory Celebrates St. Patrick's Day with Shamrock Pretzel Giveaway

Thousands of pretzels to be given away in Haddon Heights, N.J.; Burlington, N.J. and Abington, Penn.

Sometimes there is more than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; sometimes there are complementary pretzels for loyal fans. On Thursday, March 17, 2016 the Haddon Heights, New Jersey; Burlington, New Jersey; and Abington, Pennsylvania, Philly Pretzel Factory locations will be giving away one shamrock-shaped pretzel per person starting as soon as they open. Customers will also be able to purchase these special treats throughout the weekend for $1.50 each.

Bob Tilton, owner of all three locations, enjoys giving back to the communities where his stores are located by hosting customer appreciation events like the shamrock pretzel giveaway. Tilton, who is spearheading the shamrock pretzel giveaway initiative locally, is passionate about showing his customers that they are truly valued, and he wants to acknowledge the regular patrons of Philly Pretzel Factory.

“We wanted to give back to everyone who has supported us, and this is a fun way to engage with our customers while saying thank you,” Tilton said.

Locations that will be giving away shamrock pretzels all day on Thursday, March 17th include:

  • Haddon Heights, New Jersey – located at 209 Black Horse Pike
  • Burlington, New Jersey – located at 696 High St.
  • Abington, Pennsylvania – located at 1836 Old York Rd.

As the world’s largest Philly-style bakery, Philly Pretzel Factory bakes fresh, delicious soft pretzels delivered to customers “served hot outta the oven.” Each pretzel, made from a mix of only the finest and freshest ingredients, is hand twisted to ensure quality and authenticity.

“Our customers have helped us achieve great success over the years and these types of local promotions allow us to and thank them,” said Dan DiZio, CEO and co-founder of Philly Pretzel Factory, the 150-plus-unit pretzel chain born and raised in Philadelphia.

In order to turn his pretzel stand into something much bigger, DiZio teamed up with college buddy Len Lehman in 1998 to create the first Philly Pretzel Factory blueprint. Since then, the brand has grown from a single location in Mayfair to 154 locations across the U.S.
