Philly Pretzel Factory twists for the cure

The Philly Pretzel Factory was recently featured in the Appen Newspapers in an article entitled “Twist for the Cure.” In an effort during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Philly Pretzel Factory has partnered with the Susan G. Komen Foundation in efforts to help raise money for breast cancer research. This fundraiser is especially meaningful to local Milton franchisee, Jill Erhardt as she is a cancer survivor herself and understands the importance of the Susan G. Komen foundation. To support this cause, the Milton Philly Pretzel Factory will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the ribbon shaped pretzels to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, in addition to giving guests a pink ribbon to place on their wall of fame. Jill also discusses that 99% of her business is making custom shaped pretzels such as falcon for the Falons game or a GT for Georgia Tech.

October is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness, and the folks at Milton's Philly Pretzel Factory have taken the message to heart by baking ribbon-shaped pretzels and donating half of the sales of these pretzels to cancer research.

Jill Erhardt is one of the owners of the Milton location and is also a cancer survivor, so helping the cause is an important one for her.

"I've been cancer-free for 11 years now," said Erhardt. "It's very important for me to make people aware to do all the things you need to do to stay healthy."

Whether it's eating a fat-free pretzel from the PPF or leading a healthy lifestyle, Erhardt wants to help the cause, however possible. So her shop will be making pretzels in the shape of the pink breast cancer ribbon throughout the month.

"Ninety-nine percent of our Business is making custom shapes," said Erhardt. "Whether the ribbon or the 'GT' for Georgia Tech games or a falcon for the Falcons game, we make all sorts." (Read More)
