Wege Pretzel Company located in Hanover, PA,
is one of the oldest and respected names in the pretzel baking industry. Wege (pronounced wig'gie) is the name of a family that began baking breads and rolls during the late 1800's. A German immigrant baker who was working his way across the country went to work for Wege Pretzel Company during the early 1920's. While employed, he taught the Wege Family an old German recipe for making a large Sourdough Hard Pretzel, the one for which Wege is now famous.
