The San Diego Pretzel Co. dates back to 1995, when the owner and former executive chef, Harris Golden, opened up a small pretzel bakery in Ocean Beach. Golden was born and raised in New York, then moved to Arizona when he became the executive chef for Elizabeth Arden’s Maine Chance resort for eighteen years. Being a “Zonie,” his family would escape the Arizona heat and vacation in beautiful San Diego. After numerous summers of vacationing, Golden decided his vacation city of San Diego, would be the perfect place to live in and start a business.
The popular trend of today is eating foods that are made from 100% all natural ingredients, free of preservatives, and non-GMOs. San Diego Pretzel Company adheres to these standards, hand rolling each pretzel using all natural, quality ingredients. Quality, authenticity, and freshness are top priorities.
San Diego Pretzel Company was once a single pretzel cart in 1995 at Fashion Valley Mall and farmer’s markets around town, to now being one of the largest soft pretzel manufacturers in the U.S. Most notable for our pretzels at the Del Mar Racetrack, Comic Con Convention Center, Qualcomm Stadium, Disneyland & California Adventure Park Concessions, local restaurants/pubs in town, and expanding. Being a local business in San Diego to becoming a wholesale manufacturer delivering to all fifty states, San Diego Pretzel has a unique story to tell, especially when there are less than a handful of pretzel companies on the west coast.
