TWISTER, SOFT PRETZEL BITES, SOFTSTIX, SOFT PRETZEL BUNS, TEXAS TWIST, KIM & SCOTT’S GOURMET PRETZELS, and SERIOUSLY TWISTED!; and to a lesser extent, under private labels. Soft pretzels are sold in the Food Service and Retail Supermarket segments. Certain of the company’s soft pretzels qualify under USDA regulations as the nutritional equivalent of bread for purposes of the USDA school lunch program, thereby enabling a participating school to obtain partial reimbursement of the cost of the company’s soft pretzels from the USDA. The company’s soft pretzels are manufactured according to a proprietary formula. Soft pretzels, ranging in size from 1 to 10 ounces in weight, are shaped and formed by the company’s twister machines. These soft pretzel tying machines are automated, high-speed machines for twisting dough into the traditional pretzel shape. Additionally, the company makes soft pretzels, which are extruded or shaped by hand. Soft pretzels, after processing, are primarily quick-frozen in either raw or baked form and packaged for delivery. The company’s principal marketing program in the Food Service segment includes supplying ovens, mobile merchandisers, display cases, warmers and similar merchandising equipment to the retailer to prepare and promote the sale of soft pretzels. Some of this equipment is proprietary, including combination warmer and display cases that reconstitute frozen soft pretzels while displaying them, thus eliminating the need for an oven.
