Calendar This: Wetzel’s Offers Free Pretzels on April 26 for Its ’4th National Wetzel Day’

Wetzel’s Pretzels, the innovative pretzel chain headquartered in Pasadena, is hosting its fourth annual National Wetzel Day on April 26, in honor of National Pretzel Day, and will be offering a free Original Pretzel to every customer.

Guests who visit any Wetzel’s Pretzels locations—including the store at 35 Hugus Alley in Pasadena—will receive a hot, made-from-scratch treat. Last year, the company gave out more than 40,000 free pretzels nationwide.

Wetzel’s Pretzels is also encouraging guests to “share the pretzel love” across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For those who follow the company on Instagram and post a picture of their free pretzel using the hashtag #nationalwetzelday, Wetzel’s will reward them with a second free Original Pretzel, redeemable via a code on the Wetzel’s Pretzels app, valid through May 31.

“Our pretzels are made from simple ingredients, like flour, yeast and a pinch of salt, and we think getting a free pretzel on National Pretzel Day should be equally as simple,” said Jennifer Schuler, Wetzel’s Pretzels President, in a press release Tuesday. “Our team is committed to keeping the day fun and free, offering free pretzels to all our customers, no strings attached, which is why we’ve made this day our own ‘National Wetzel Day.’ If you want to celebrate National Pretzel Day, there’s no better way to do it than with Wetzel’s Pretzels.”

Bill Phelps and Rick Wetzel opened the first Wetzel’s Pretzels bakery in Redondo Beach in 1994. Today, Wetzel’s Pretzels has grown to more than 330 fresh bakeries across the United States and around the world, including premier locations at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
