Wetzel's Pretzels 06

Wetzel’s Pretzels was founded in 1994 by two former Nestlé executives, Rick Wetzel and Bill Phelps. They concocted a pretzel mix like no other and worked it into a perfect hand-rolled, fresh baked, soft pretzel that will always be served hot and fresh. As the only founders in the snack food industry still operating their own business, they pride themselves on being innovators and industry leaders in the super-premium pretzel category.
