Benzel’s Bretzel Bakery

For generations, Benzel’s has been making quality pretzels. In the late 1800s when a young German immigrant arrived in America bringing with him an Old-World recipe for pretzels. Throughout the years, he worked hard and opened his own shop in Altoona and Benzel’s Bretzel Bakery, Inc. was born.

Over one hundred years later, the business continues creating a diverse product line with care and precision. Their store is a local landmark where customers flock near and far to shop their favorites and get photo ops in front of the store’s authentic train caboose. Stop by this historic, charming bakery when you’re craving something tasty!
