This Monday is shaping up to be just a little better than your average Monday.
Why, you ask? Because Philly Pretzel Factory is giving out free pretzels.
The company is celebrating its 20th anniversary on Monday by giving out one free Philly pretzel to everyone who visits its stores.
All you need to do to get your hands on a free Philly pretzel is show up during business hours on Monday.
You can find the nearest Philly Pretzel Factory right here. (There are 25 Philly Pretzel Factory outposts in the Philly region, according to the company’s website, so you probably won’t have to go too far.)
A little history for you: Before becoming the co-founder and CEO of Philly Pretzel Factory, Philly-native Dan DiZio first began selling pretzels at Philly intersections when he was 11 years old — and eventually he even started organizing neighborhood kids to work with him in multiple parts of the city.
The endeavor paid off: When DiZio graduated from college in 1998, he and his college roommate, Len Lehman, opened the first Philly Pretzel Factory in Mayfair.
DiZio and Lehman began franchising the store in 2004. It eventually expanded into 12 states, and the company serves 125 million “Philly Style” pretzels each year.
