Springfield pretzel shop now open

A popular Springfield pretzel shop previously located at the Upper Valley Mall for at least a decade is now open on North Fountain Avenue.

“I’m very excited that we have this great, new location,” Pretzelmaker Manager Mandi Perrin previously told us. “It always looks more and more amazing every time I go down there. I’m extremely ecstatic, not just for us, but our customers as well.”

Pretzelmaker, a franchise specializing in fresh-baked, handcrafted pretzels since 1991, has 280 locations in the U.S. and worldwide, according to its website.

Perrin has been with the franchise for five years.

The pretzel shop features traditional pretzels, pretzel bites, pepperoni bites, pretzel dogs and much more. The shop has a variety of flavorings that can be added to your pretzel, including parmesan, garlic and cinnamon sugar, Perrin said. The shop also has an array of dips that includes pizza sauce, mustard, nacho cheese, cheddar cheese, cream cheese and caramel.

And let’s not forget about the drinks.

Pretzelmaker has fountain Coke products, smoothies and frozen lemonades, Perrin said.

She previously said she was as anxious as the community for the shop to open.
