Auntie Anne's Opens 25th UK store at Bullring in Birmingham
Auntie Anne’s pretzels are considered to be the best in the world and they have arrived at Bullring, Birmingham, creating 11 local jobs. With almost 1,300 stores worldwide and now 25 in the UK & Ireland, thousands of people enjoy its tasty pretzels every day.
With a full range of several sweet and savoury flavours available, they are expertly hand rolled with fresh ingredients by highly trained staff before your very eyes.
Robert Burton, Manging Director for the UK & Ireland, said: “We are extremely proud to be in the very prestigious Bullring alongside many other premium retail brands. A quarter of a million shoppers are expected to visit this Saturday, so we are expecting a very successful launch. This is our sixth store with Hammerson, the landlord for Bullring. We are sure that our customers will continue to visit us when they want a great quality freshly made snack.”
The franchise owner, Robert Granicz, has invested in and opened the new franchise, and has hired 11 new staff from the local area. This is his third Auntie Anne’s franchise and commenting on the launch he said: “Every town and city should have an Auntie Anne’s; it’s a great brand and offers fantastic, tasty products at great value. I expect this store to be very popular.”
The extensive hand-rolled pretzel menu includes sweet pretzels such as Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate, Almond, Raisin and Vanilla Sugar pretzels, whilst the savoury options include Original, Garlic, Sour Cream and Chive, Sesame, Jalapeño, Cheese, as well as Pepperoni.
Alongside the traditional soft dough pretzels, customers can also sample the other bread based products such as the Auntie Anne’s ‘Pretzel Dogs’ made with Herta hot dogs, wrapped in the trademark dough and baked until golden brown. As all products are prepared fresh on site, special dietary requirements (such as no salt, no butter and low fat options) can be catered for on request.
For the full experience why not ask staff to recommend one of the full ranges of dipping sauces to compliment your pretzel experience. The store also serves lemonade, freshly squeezed on site every day, Dutch Ice (a form of slush drinks) Coca-Cola® minerals and fresh coffee.
