Auntie Anne’s got its start in 1988 when Anne Beiler bought a stand in a Pennsylvania farmers market. After some experimentation, “Auntie” Anne created a masterpiece. We continue to bake by a certain philosophy that keeps people coming back for more delicious dough. It’s easy to see: We are so much more than just pretzels. RAISING THE STANDARD OF SNACKING At Auntie Anne's we are committed as ever to raising the standard of snacking. We created a manifesto to live by. We represent a set of beliefs and lifestyles, a list of rules and goals. It's our plan for a better world, a declaration of independence, and a moral compass that will guide and define Auntie Anne's.
