by Katie Lee

Albuquerque, N.M. — Wetzel’s Pretzels is now open in Coronado Center in Albuquerque. Wetzel’s joins more than 130 retail shops at the mall, which is the state’s largest shopping center. The new location also marks the first Wetzel’s Pretzels in the state of New Mexico. 

The debut New Mexico location is owned and operated by Tamanna Sayed and Md Abul Kalam Azad. “As existing franchise owners in California, we were ready to start a journey with Wetzel’s into a region with tons of growth potential,” says Sayed. “We’re drawn to the brand for its vibrant energy and family-friendly appeal, and I am confident in saying it’s the best franchise to get involved with.”

“It’s business partners like Tamanna and Md Abul who allow us to keep growing,” says Jon Fischer, head of development at Wetzel’s. “We’re confident they will make a positive mark in the state, bringing the SoCal vibes to more people throughout New Mexico and beyond.”

As the brand approaches its 30th anniversary, it is strategically positioned for another monumental year with a concentrated effort on expansion. Wetzel’s development plans extend beyond traditional mall settings, encompassing airports, stadiums, food trucks, convenience stores and major retailers like Walmart and Macy’s.

Wetzel’s was founded by Bill Phelps and Rick Wetzel in 1994 in Pasadena, Calif. Today, Wetzel’s Pretzels has grown to over 400 locations. For more information, visit https://www.wetzelsfranchising.com.
