Every year, I look forward to National Pretzel Day just as much as Stanley looks forward to Pretzel Day on “The Office.” Maybe it’s because my family’s weekend tradition was going to the mall just for something to do, and stopping for soft pretzels was always part of the plan.

And freshly made soft pretzels are even better when they’re free. This Monday, we can all enjoy a free soft pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory.

How to Get a Free Pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory This Monday

Philly Pretzel Factory co-founder Dan DiZio started selling pretzels at a busy intersection in Philadelphia at age 11 — and after graduating college, he and his college roommate turned his childhood side gig into a booming business.

Now, Philly Pretzel Factory is celebrating 20 years of serving up “hot outta the oven” soft pretzels with free pretzels for everyone on Monday, Aug. 20. And there is no purchase necessary — your fresh, buttery soft pretzel will be totally free.

Plus, you’ll have a chance to win free pretzels for a year! Just be sure to fill out a ballot card when you stop in for your free pretzel.

And don’t worry: You don’t have to take a trip to Philly to get in on this deal. Although the original Philly Pretzel Factory was started in Philadelphia, there are now more than 100 locations across 12 states.
