ATLANTA, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Get your calendars out and circle April 26th as Pretzelmaker®, home of the world's best soft pretzel, announced today that it is once again celebrating its yearly tradition of giving away FREE pretzels as it salutes National Pretzel Day.  This year, Pretzelmaker is twisting up the fun by asking customers to tell their favorite joke and receive a FREE soft pretzel (standard salted or unsalted) while supplies last. Patrons, who lack a funny bone, can simply say "National Pretzel Day" and they too will receive a free pretzel, but it won't be as funny.  Pretzelmaker is managed by GFG Management, LLC, a subsidiary of Global Franchise Group.

Television star NeNe Leakes will serve as the official spokesperson to support Pretzelmaker through a variety of activities, including promoting the day's celebrations through a nationwide satellite media tour on April 26th. NeNe, who can currently be seen on the NBC Comedy, The New Normal, the fifth season of the reality show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, as well as a recurring role on Glee, is excited to inspire fans to joke around this holiday.

"This is our sixth year celebrating National Pretzel Day," said Julie-Ann Reid, Pretzelmaker Brand Director for GFG Management, LLC. "We decided to keep the fun rolling this year by encouraging our customers to 'joke for their snack' to get a free pretzel."
