Auntie Anne's, based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is an American chain of pretzel bakeries founded by Anne F. Beiler and her husband, Jonas, in 1988. Auntie Anne's serves products such as pretzels, dips, and beverages. Their pretzel products are also available in the form of an At-Home Baking Kit.
Auntie Anne's has more than 300 franchisees with more than 1,200 locations in the United States and more than 23 countries globally.
The chain started as a market stand in the Downingtown, Pennsylvania Farmer's Market. In the same year, Auntie Anne's expanded to eight locations in the state of Pennsylvania, after the first bakery opened in Harrisburg. The first mall location was the Park City Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1989. By 1990, the bakery chain spread to nine other states with 50 locations. In 1992, the first Auntie Anne's airport location opened at the Pittsburgh International Airport. The year 1995 brought its first train station store at Penn Station in New York City. By 2005, there were 887 bakeries in 45 states and twelve countries.
From 1999 through 2009, Auntie Anne’s and its franchisees partnered to donate more than $4.5 million to local children’s hospitals across the country through the Children's Miracle Network.
In October 2006, it was announced that the Auntie Anne's corporate headquarters would be relocated from the town of Gap to downtown Lancaster. The former site of the Lancaster Post Office was purchased for $7 million by Auntie Anne's, Inc. The building itself was constructed in 1927, and stands at three stories tall on about 1.5 acres (6,100 m2). The building maintains the original 1920s features such as brass doors, high ceilings, and skylights. The Lancaster Post Office was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
In November 2010, FOCUS Brands acquired Auntie Anne's.
In 2012, Auntie Anne's was featured on of A&E's "Be the Boss."
You wouldn’t think a company celebrating 25 years in business would struggle with brand awareness. But Bill Dunn, president and COO of Auntie Anne’s pretzels, said its one of the biggest challenges the company faces—not for lack of quality product or availability, but because of the nature of the service the business provides.
“We are predominantly based in malls and outlets,” he said. “It’s something people will see as they go to their destination, so a lot of our marketing is done within the store.”
The company doesn’t see this as a struggle, but an opportunity, Dunn said. Its stores are everywhere, yet aren’t quite destinations the way a Dunkin’ Donuts would be. The company combats this by handing out free samples and pounding the social media pavement to drive awareness.
In the year to come Auntie Anne’s is set to add 100 new U.S. stores and 118 international locations to its total of 1350, a solid follow-up to its best year for openings ever. In 2012, the company opened 117 domestic units and 85 international stores.
Auntie Anne’s opened up its first overseas location in 1995 in Jakarta, Indonesia and has focused on international growth ever since, Dunn said. The company also develops local flavors, including a Kiwi-flavored product in Singapore, which allows it to remain brand consistent with local flare.
“The international market continues to be a tremendous opportunity for us to expand,” Dunn said. “But we continue to grow and find success in pursuing malls, colleges, Wal-mart stores and military bases.”
And Dunn said the company’s main key to success is in its dough, literally. Since it was first made in 1988, the recipe for the company’s basic pretzel has not changed.
“We have built our unique products that fit the flavor profile of our consumers and what they will go for,” he said. “I think making the product all day fresh from open to close means we are upholding our commitment to the guest. We use the dough as our platform, and product innovation is key to our ongoing success.”
Auntie Anne’s has 350 franchisees which account for its 1350 locations around the world. Some own just one store, while others own upwards of 65 each, he said, but on average its about three stores per franchisee. Between full-time and part-time employees, each store has between 10 and 20 on its payroll, Dunn says.
Part of the reason the company continues to be profitable over so many years is its franchisees, Dunn said. Businesses considering franchising should be hyper-aware of the people they are franchising to.
“You have to align yourself with the right people,” Dunn said. “It’s kind of like a marriage. We are partners and are trying to accomplish the same thing, so if they are successful, we’re successful.”
Franchising is also not a fast-track to cash, he said. Selling franchises takes serious vetting and nurturing, so it’s not for the faint of heart.
“You can’t just open the doors and expect people to come,” he said. “It’s not a turn-key business, or something that will help you grow your business.”
The corporate side of the company is providing franchisees with that all-important information regarding Obamacare as well, Dunn said. Auntie Anne’s hosts council meetings as well as regional franchisee meetings to discuss what’s coming down the pike.
Franchisees with multiple store location deals will likely be watching their employee thresholds, as multiple stores owned by the same franchisee are subject to the 50-employee mandate.
“We are trying to give them all the information they need, so that they can make intelligent business decisions,” he said. “It’s premature to say [the law] is a concern, but we are aware of the implications that may come from it. We make sure we are nimble, and can position ourselves to react as best we can.”
I attended an art exhibition in the home of an Indian-American couple a few months back. The woman who answered the door to show me and my companion around said she was the homeowner. She was of an indeterminable age, but definitely an adult—and I don’t mean only in a legal sense! The gathering was of mixed age, ethnicity, and gender. Wine flowed and hors d’oeuvres were nibbled. It was a cosmopolitan scene. We were all adults in a neutral setting, and yet when it was time to leave, the hostess said to me, “Thanks for coming, aunty!” I bristled. How dare this woman call me aunty? Was this the result of her vanity? Was my anger an indication of mine? Her use of the term “aunty” with a perfect stranger was both deliberate and careless. This was not about respect. There was no regard for long-term association or affection. This was clearly an example of “you’re from an older, other world, and I’m still young, and I want to put some distance between us.”
Here are some guidelines for the use of the term “aunty” and to prevent against the kind of encounter I’ve just described.
If I have not known you when you were a child, and been a part of your life as you learnt and grew—I am not your aunty.
If you are an adult with or without furrows on your temples, and our paths have never crossed before—I am not your aunty.
If your children are younger than mine, or you are the same age as my grown children, but I am meeting you for the first time—I am not your aunty.
And if you’re just not sure what to call someone? Ask; don’t assume.
I’m not the only one who feels this way. I’ve seen what happens when friends’ parents visit from India, all articulate, successful, professional individuals in their own right, most still working adults, some retired perhaps, who nevertheless are made to feel like tag-alongs in the United States. Many of these parents insist that they prefer to be “left at home” when asked to accompany their offspring to local dinner functions and are pushed to the “aunty/uncle” section of the room. What happened to Indian grace, hospitality, and our cultural reverence for the wisdom and experience of age?
In the India of my childhood, aunties were privileged and exceptional members of the family. If they were not the sisters of your father or mother, or the wives of your uncles, they were close family friends who had known you since infancy and had a stake or significant interest in your well being. In a culture in which godmothers were unfamiliar, the aunty, like the “aunt” elephant in a matriarchal herd of elephants, took on that distinctive, responsible role and helped our mother defend and protect her calf.
Children have always needed aunties: women who were caring and courageous enough to share in the act of mothering. And aunties have always been part of every child’s “village,” whether in India or the United States. In fact a bestselling tribute to the institution of aunty-dom, The Complete Book of Aunts by Rupert Christiansen, was published in the U.K. in 2006 and states that of all our blood relations, an aunt offers the most potential for an uncomplicated friendship. As the author writes, there’s no reason to “let the aunt slide unremembered into the dust box of history.” Acknowledging significant family members is important, and I agree that we should celebrate those figures who mean something to us. But “mean something” is the operative phrase.
Think of all the older desi ladies you call “aunty.” Do you reserve use of the term for those with whom you have a significant relationship?
Let us not diminish the value of extended family, or reduce the importance of commitment and involvement, by loose interpretations and titles drawn by vanity. It’s time to redefine words like “aunty” and “uncle” in our vocabularies and restore their use to a rightful position. It’s time to honor those friends and family who truly have a hand in shaping our lives.
