Philly Pretzel Factory to Relocate From Downtown

Party-goers who enjoyed a soft pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory on Friday nights will need to find another drunk food location starting next semester.

Located at 124 S. Allen St., the cheap but delicious soft pretzel eatery has shut its doors. Most of the signage has been removed from the building and the equipment is nowhere to be found looking inside the window.

According to Philly Pretzel Factory administrative assistant Maggie Martin, the chain will be moving to the Wal-Mart on Benner Park to “increase revenue.” Apparently the chain has a good relationship with Wal-Mart and is increasingly opening locations at the retail supergiant. Construction on the Wal-Mart Philly Pretzel Factory will begin next month, although it certainly takes any significant student revenue out of the equation.
