The Scoop: Pretzel Boys to add to local soft pretzel market

November 30th 09:11am, 2010

112910_pretzelboysPretzel Boys, a soft pretzel chain that was started five years ago in Philadelphia and that now totals 10 stores nationwide, is making its westward expansion. Owner Tim Garvey is setting up shop at 11750 Manchester Road in Des Peres, where he will offer carry-out and wholesale/bulk order delivery of umpteen varieties of soft pretzels, all made on-site.

Garvey told The Scoop that the menu will include the traditional hand-twisted pretzel as well as pretzel-wrapped hot dogs, brats and sausages, various cheese pretzels, and those topped with flavors like cinnamon and sugar. Considering that the founder of Pretzel Boys, who is also a friend of Garvey’s, gave him the OK to switch up the menu a bit, the St. Louis locale will offer a slight variation from the standard Pretzel Boys menu.

Soft pretzels aren’t exactly new to Garvey. He owns four vending corners outside of Busch Stadium where he sells quick snacks – including Gus’ Pretzels – and cold beverages to fans headed to the game. Should we guess which brand of freshly baked pretzels he’ll be peddling on Eighth Street come baseball season next year?

Pretzel Boys will open the first week of January, operating Monday to Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

UPDATE 1.10.11: Pretzel Boys is now open.

    I attended the grand opening and ate a fresh pretzel for FREE! Let me tell you, this is the best pretzel I’ve ever had. The service was great and I will definitely be coming back for more!
