(ANGOLA) - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday morning for the new Ben’s Soft Pretzels store in the Angola Wal-Mart. The store is located in the space that used to be a photo studio. It's owned by Ben Miller and his family who are originally from the Sturgis area.
As a way to celebrate the opening of the Angola store, free pretzels were being given away on Wednesday.
Operations Manager Andy Churney says this is the first store in Indiana to open in a Wal Mart. Another will be opening soon at a Wal Mart store in Elkhart.
Ben's has 22 franchise stores in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. According to the businesses web site, they were founded in early 2008 with the first store at the Concord Mall in Elkhart.
Angola Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Christina Koher and Angola Mayor Dick Hickman join Ben Miller and his family on Wednesday for the opening of "Ben's Soft Pretzels" in the Angola Wal Mart.
