Welcome to Ben's!


Welcome to Ben's! We're so glad you are here. Amish inspired, and oh-so-delicious, we are a leader in the soft pretzel market, offering preservative-free pretzels baked fresh on-site daily. Our legendary Jumbo Soft Pretzel features a fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth taste, and is often enjoyed with a wide array of gourmet dipping sauces. Ben’s Soft Pretzels are almost double the size of other pretzels and feature imported salt from Germany.


We've been told our pretzels are love at first bite and they haven been known to produce a craving so strong we've had to issue a craving caution statement.  


There are currently more than 100 Ben’s Soft Pretzels bakery locations throughout Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, and Florida.


Our master lease and license agreement with retail giants, Wal-Mart and Meijer, allow for franchise partners to open bakeries in high-traffic areas.

In addition to Ben’s Soft Pretzels more traditional locations, Ben’s Pretzels can also be found at numerous stadium venues

Ben's Soft Pretzels was founded in early 2008 in Indiana by three food-loving entrepreneurs passionate about great tasting snacks. Read more about our history here
