Tom Sturgis Pretzels was founded by Marriott “Tom” Sturgis in 1946 and is the only surviving company to be run by direct descendants of Julius Sturgis, who founded the first commercial pretzel bakery in 1861 in Lititz, PA. Today the 4th, 5th and 6th generations actively work in the day-to-day operations of the bakery. Tom Sturgis Pretzels continues to use old-fashioned recipes and techniques combined with modern equipment to give the full flavor to its pretzels that customers have come to expect.
