Known for serving soft pretzels, Auntie Anne’s was started by Anne Beiler in 1988 at a Pennsylvania farmer’s market, according to information on its website. The pretzels exploded in popularity, and now there are over 1,000 locations throughout the U.S., including many located in malls and airports.
The menu features traditional soft pretzels, served freshly baked and warm, available in a number of flavors, including pepperoni, sweet almond and cinnamon sugar. Additionally, there are pretzel dogs, which are hot dogs encased in a soft pretzel, as well as pretzel bites in regular and cinnamon sugar flavors.
And there are a number of dips offered that pair well with the pretzel items, including savory dips like cheese, honey mustard, marinara and sweet dips such as caramel and sweet glaze. Drinks include lemonade in a number of flavors and soft drinks.
Auntie Anne’s Pretzels at John Glenn Columbus International Airport is operated by HMSHost, an American highway and airport food service company.
