“We’re excited to support our hometown players and are looking forward to bringing fans from all corners of the United States a special taste of our iconic pretzels,” said Dan DiZio, Co-Founder and CEO of the Philly Pretzel Factory. “It’s been over a decade since their last time making it to the big game and only the third time that they have qualified this far, so we are rallying behind the team and rooting for them.”
Representatives from Philly Pretzel Factory will be selling pretzels starting on Saturday, February 3rd at the IDS Center, located at 9120 West River Road. Media interested in tasting a sample or having the concession truck visit them may contact Philly Pretzel Factory Marketing Manager Adam Terranova (firstname.lastname@example.org).
