Pretzel Factory co-founder appears on ‘Undercover Boss’ tonight

Dan Dizio has been selling pretzels since he was 11 years old, but it’s been a long time since he’s been behind the counter.

The co-founder and CEO of the Philly Pretzel Factory will be twisting dough again tonight when he appears on “Undercover Boss,” the CBS reality show that secretly puts executives to work with their unsuspecting employees.

In one episode, Dizio will work as an assistant manager, delivery person, franchisee and mascot in an effort to determine what works and what doesn’t in his stores and find out if there’s national interest in the local staple.

“Undercover Boss” airs at 8 p.m.
