York City Pretzel Company Expands to Intercourse, PA


Central Pa (April 1, 2015)--York City Pretzel Company is expanding to open Intercourse Pretzel Company at 3614 Old Philadelphia Pike, Intercourse, PA where Intercourse Pretzel Factory previously operated for 20 years. Intercourse Pretzel Company is slated to open Monday, April 20, 2015.

York City Pretzel Company opened their doors as a soft pretzel bakery at 39 West Market Street in downtown York on December 5, 2014. Since that time, the five partners--Matthew Davis, Meagan Feeser, Philip Given, Benjamin McGlaughlin and Jordan Pfautz--have grown the business to include wholesale soft pretzel and pretzel roll sales and production of seasoned hard pretzel pieces.

Less than three months after opening, the restaurant-rating service Zagat claimed that York City Pretzel Company’s “signature twists alone are almost worth the trip out” from Philadelphia. Now Philadelphians will only have to make the trip to Intercourse, PA for what Zagat calls, “a true Bavarian pretzel.”

Intercourse Pretzel Company will operate as a working pretzel bakery in the heart of Amish Country. The menu will feature similar offerings to York City Pretzel Company, including signature soft pretzels, signature and cinnamon sugar soft pretzel nuggets, Sprecher Brewery draft root beer, pink lemonade, Sprecher Brewery beer and root beer mustards and Intercourse Pretzel Company’s housemade cheese dip, made with local beer.

“Our pretzels are a new twist on an old standard,” says Philip Given, president of Intercourse Pretzel Company. “We describe our pretzels as Bavarian-style, so they differ from the sweeter, buttery Pennsylvania Dutch-style pretzels. Intercourse pretzels are tangy with a classic bronze sheen and unlike any other soft pretzel you’ll taste in Lancaster County.”

“We hope you’ll visit us for a Signature Soft Pretzel and beer mustard, wash it down with a Sprecher draft root beer or just stop by to say ‘hi’ to Amish Country’s newest pretzel bakers.”

To start, Intercourse Pretzel Company will be open to visitors Monday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm. For more information, visit http://www.intercoursepretzel.com or like Intercourse Pretzel Company on Facebook.
