Philadelphia, PA - Philly Pretzel Factory, the largest Philly style pretzel bakery in the world, has embarked on a cross-country trip driving its concession truck from Philadelphia to Minneapolis in support of its underdog football team playing on February 4, 2018. While in Minnesota, the company knows that Philly Pretzel Factory fans from all over the U.S. will love to enjoy its fresh, "served hot outta the oven" pretzels.
On January 21st, the morning of the NFC Championship game, a franchisee in Pennsylvania came up with an idea to create a pretzel in the shape of a dog bone, referring to it as an “underdog pretzel bone.” He sold them, donating proceeds to his local animal shelter. Once the news made its way through the franchise system, additional locations across state lines began making the “underdog pretzel bones” over the last two weeks, donating part of the proceeds to local animal shelters.
"We're excited to support our hometown players and are looking forward to bringing fans from all corners of the United States a special taste of our iconic pretzels," said Dan DiZio, Co-Founder and CEO of the Philly Pretzel Factory. "It's been over a decade since their last time making it to the big game and only the third time that they have qualified this far, so we are rallying behind the team and rooting for them."
Representatives from Philly Pretzel Factory will be selling pretzels starting on Saturday, February 3rd at the IDS Center, located at 9120 West River Road.
