FRANCHISEE IN ACTION: Tyler Dutton | Wetzel’s Pretzels

from member of the Marine Corps to

my greater ambition

Wetzel’s Pretzels (Wetzel’s) has been a part of my life for over 15 years. Living in California as a teenager, I knew the brand well and began working at a local store in Rancho Cucamonga. It was a fun, vibrant place to work with a familyoriented atmosphere, so I naturally fell in love with Wetzel’s. Even as a 16-year-old, I always had the greater ambition of owning and managing my own Wetzel’s location one day, and seeing how the franchisee at the Rancho Cucamonga store operated only further enhanced my entrepreneurial spirit.
