A Philadelphia-based chain of pretzel shops is on its way to the Boston area.
According to a message sent by @CappyinBoston, Philly Pretzel Factory is getting ready to debut in Revere, with a Facebook post from the place earlier this month indicating that it is on the verge of opening its doors. Philly Pretzel Factory mentions on its website that it is "the world's largest Philly-style pretzel bakery," with well over 100 franchised shops--though there are none currently in New England and the closest locations are in the New York metropolitan area. In addition to scratch-made pretzels, the chain offers such items as pretzel dogs, pretzel cheesesteak, spicy pretzel sausages, pepperoni pretzel melts, cinnamon pretzel sticks, rivets (pretzel nuggets), and frozen lemonade.
The address for this new pretzel shop in Revere is: Philly Pretzel Factory, 4 Squire Road, Revere, MA, 02151. The website for the chain can be found at http://phillypretzelfactory.com/
