A second/additional Philly Pretzel factory location is coming to Washington Township (Gloucester County), to be located at the former Fulton Bank building at Echo Plaza on Hurffville Cross Keys Road.
There is another full store location on Egg Harbor Road in town, which will remain open.
The news of the new upcoming Hurffville Cross Keys location comes to us from the first “Township” store on Egg Harbor Rd, which recently put up a sign in the register area announcing the second location!
And while I have to believe everyone knows what the Philly Pretzel Factory factory is all about… they sell fresh, hot pretzels! Each location is a full independent pretzel bakery, and the pretzels sold were made that same day!
The pretzel dough is made in the store from the freshest flour. The dough is hand-rolled into pretzels, and baked right in the store.
Philly Pretzel Factory – Hurffville Cross Keys Road
For further context on this new location, the building sits at the front of Echo Plaza which is at the corner of Hurffville Cross Keys Rd and Fries Mill Road.
Echo Plaza is the shopping center that has a Giant Fitness gym as a key tenant.
The new location puts fresh pretzels closer to the Jefferson and Virtua health facilities, the new Woodmont residential project and of course other area homes
An interesting aspect about this is the former bank property is, it’s a fairly large building compared to what we typically see for a Philly Pretzel Factory store. The architect rendering they show at the Egg Harbor store clearly shows they will be utilizing the entire building. So I am curious to see how they utilize the large space!
Because of it’s former life as a bank there is obviously a drive-thru in the building.. but at this time I don’t know if it will be incorporated into the new location.
Philly Pretzel Factory – Facts and Figures
Philly Pretzel Factory is the nation’s largest Philly Style pretzel brand, with over 160 franchised locations.
They were founded in 1998 by two Philadelphia area college buddies, but reports say one of the founders started his foray into the pretzel business when he was 11 years old!
Philly Pretzel Factory’s menu offers the traditional Philly style pretzel and also includes pretzel twists, mini pretzels, rivets, pretzel dogs, cheesesteak pretzels and a variety of mustards.
The full bakery stores make up the bulk of their locations, but they can also be found in area Walmarts offering the same freshly baked pretzels but with a smaller menu.
Other immediate area locations are; Washington Township, Deptford,, Mt Ephraim, Blackwood and more.
