Get your calendars out and circle Saturday, April 26th as Pretzelmaker® celebrates its yearly tradition of giving away FREE pretzels on National Pretzel Day, while raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Customers are invited to visit their local Pretzelmaker to receive a FREE soft pretzel (standard salted or unsalted) and will be encouraged (but not obligated) to make an in-kind donation of any amount to the organization. If the company achieves its goal of giving away 65,000 pretzels, Pretzelmaker will make a corporate contribution to LLS, which seeks to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Customers can also make donations online by visiting http://pages.lightthenight.org/2014/globalfranchisegroup.

Be sure to share your National Pretzel Day memories with us on Twitter®, Facebook® and Instagram® using the hashtag #NPDWarmUp.
