After twists and turns Pretzel City Kitchens finds a home

FROM THE JOURNAL STANDARD, FREEPORT — After years of preparation, fundraising and searching for the right location, Pretzel City Kitchens leaders expect to open the commercial kitchen this fall after signing a lease at The Wagner House in Freeport.

When a deal fell through with a previous landlord in downtown Freeport, board members looked at another possibility with Bill Green, owner of 218 properties, who agreed to lease part of the first floor at The Wagner House to Pretzel City Kitchens. While construction is still ongoing, Pretzel City Kitchens board secretary Jen Newendyke said they hope to have the shared-use kitchen operational by September for culinary classes from CareerTEC.

“We will have a 16-foot hood, plus two commercial ranges with 10 burners that will have multiple uses in the kitchen, “Newendyke said. “Having the Pretzel City Kitchens at The Wagner House means we can have more users for the various events, which mean revenue. We are excited to have this location and we hope to have our soft opening in September and then have a fundraiser at the end of September.”
