The American love of snack foods has driven the development of many specialized restaurant concepts. One of these niches is the pretzel franchise. Most brands are built around the soft pretzel, not the smaller hard pretzel that is the counterpart of potato chips. Because they are portable and can serve as the base for many different flavor options, pretzels are a strong performer in the snack segment.

Top pretzel franchises have all been around since the 1980s or 1990s, so their longevity is a testament to their success. The number-one brand has over 1,100 stores, and competitors typically have unit counts in the 100 to 300 range.
As with many snack foods, pretzels support many variations both savory and sweet, which maximizes choice and appeal for customers. Some brands feature proprietary recipes for the pretzel itself as a differentiator and competitive advantage.
Pretzels have the advantage of being relatively simple to prepare This means that training new employees to turn out consistent and quality product is easier, and not much is required in the way of inventory or equipment. This is also a take-and-go product, so seating is not necessary. All of that means a low square footage requirement, typically in the 800 to 1,200 range. The only factor that bumps up real estate cost is the need for a high traffic, high visibility location, as demand for these products is very much impulse-driven.
One word of warning: The aforementioned model of high traffic and impulse purchases means that for years, shops of this kind were a prime candidate for malls. With all the talk of the evolutionary pain that brick-and-mortar retailing is experiencing and the ?death of the mall,? it?s easy to see that alternative non-mall sites are a better choice.
Given the simplicity of the concept, pretzel shops have some of the lowest startup costs among restaurant brands. In general, the estimates range from $150,000 to $400,000, with fairly comparable costs across different concepts.
