A new soft pretzel store has opened in Centerville.
Philly Pretzel Factory, located at 1063 S. Main St. in Centerville, opened its doors to customers on Tuesday. Owner Ed Horan started the venture with his wife, Julie, back in May.
Horan, a Centerville native, said this is the first Philly Pretzel Factory to open in Ohio.
Philly Pretzel Factory’s menu includes the traditional Philly style pretzel, pretzel twists, mini pretzels, rivets, pretzel dogs, and other items. Dips include mustard, melted cheese, honey mustard, chocolate, cinnamon, butter cream, marinara sauced and Philly cream sauce.
Customers can order party trays, and the owners said they hope to make a lot of business for tailgates, business functions and parties. The trays are priced from $25 to $35.

Horan said they do hope to possibly expand to other locations in the future. For now, they’ll focus on getting their first franchise off the ground.
“We know what we want to do, now it’s just how we’re going to do it,” he said.
Philly Pretzel Factory was founded in 1998 by Dan DiZio and Len Lehman, and now has more than 150 franchised locations primarily in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, expanding from New York to Florida.
The Centerville store will host a grand opening celebration on Dec. 10. For more information, customers can call 937-952-6468.
