Our Story

From our humble roots to today

Adolph Benzel, an immigrant from Germany, arrived in America with an old-world recipe for pretzels and a dream of establishing a bakery. Benzel, along with his family, stepped from a boxcar in Altoona, PA., in November 1911. He had worked for other bakers across the state, but decided it was time to put the family recipe to use and start his own pretzel bakery
