Giveaways, TV appearance for Pretzel Factory on the day that celebrates all things pretzel

    Pretzels come in all shapes and sizes, but when National Pretzel Day comes to mind, it’s the soft, fresh-baked variety we all crave.

    By the end of the day, you’re sure to be sick of them, because it’s National Pretzel Day. And what would such a day be without giveaways?
    Philly Pretzel Factory locations around the region are giving customers free pretzels today, so if you can tolerate the line, treat yourself and add all the dressings your pretzel-shaped heart desires.

    Pretzel Day has been an unofficial national holiday since Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell declared it so.

    This year is sort of a two-day holiday. Tomorrow night, Philly Pretzel Factory co-founder and CEO Dan DiZio will be on CBS’ “Undercover Boss.” The reality show follows business executives as they go undercover as employees at their own companies. You can see what goes on inside the Pretzel Factory at 8 p.m. Friday.
