Auntie Anne's continues its international expansion

Auntie Anne's, a franchise network selling pretzels, has announced that it has launched its system into two new countries, namely Greece and Honduras. Together with these new stores, the company has opened up a total of 52 new outlets this year so that its network now consists of 935 locations in 14 countries around the world.

Sam Beiler, president and CEO of the company, commented on the network’s international expansion, saying, “Our success in 12 other countries outside the U.S. proves that Auntie Anne's freshly baked soft pretzels and other delicious menu items are a hit with consumers around the world. International expansion is a key component to our growth plans, and we are thrilled to be adding Honduras and Greece as the newest countries to our system."

The first Honduras store opened its doors to the public on 5th October 2007. Honduras is the second country in Central and South America that Auntie Anne's has opened a store in since expanding into the market in 2000 with the opening of an outlet in Venezuela. The first store in Greece is due to open up in Athens on 7th November 2007. Greece is the second country in the European Union that Auntie Anne's is active in: the network can also be found in the United Kingdom which has been part of the system since 2002.

According to the information provided by the company, it is intending to open up a further 20 stores before the end of this year. Besides Greece and Honduras, this Pennsylvania-based franchise system can also be found in the USA, South Korea, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Venezuela, UAE, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, the UK and Taiwan.
