“Our food is unique. Our customers are loyal. We offer something that they can’t get anywhere else. We are fast, convenient and consistent. Our sandwich bread and pizza crust is baked fresh-from-scratch each morning. And with life’s current demands, where else can you get a whole pizza at the drive-thru, in less than 4 minutes?”

“An iconic brand like Auntie Anne’s® is beloved by our customers, but, for franchisees, it has the power to drive strong unit level economics, whether that is in a mall location or a streetside location. An impressive growth strategy designed to bring pretzels to the people in exciting new formats gives me the confidence to continue investing in the brand.”
