Looking to build off its already strong presence in the Twin Cities, executives with soft pretzel franchise chain Auntie Anneâ€™s have organized a local seminar in St. Paul with the goal of finding the right franchise partner to operate a location in Maplewood Mall by early next year.
With more than 760,000 Auntie Anneâ€™s soft pretzels consumed in the Minneapolis/St. Paul last year alone, including its Mall of America and Rosedale Shopping Mall locations, fanatics of the baked snack are rising faster than dough. Auntie Anneâ€™s, 1,130 units, is embarking on a mission to feed St. Paulâ€™s crave for baked, hand-rolled treats by bringing a new location to the popular local shopping center.
â€œWeâ€™re certain Maplewood Mall shoppers will love the Auntie Anneâ€™s experience, so weâ€™re committed to finding a business savvy franchise partner who shares in our community-oriented values,â€ said MelÃ© Sarmiento, Director of Franchise Sales and Development for Auntie Anneâ€™s. â€œWeâ€™re eager to become the new place in town where locals can frequent for a break in their day and enjoy a delicious treat.â€
