This year marks the 40th anniversary of J&J Snack Foods Corp., Pennsauken, N.J., a leading producer of soft pretzels.
It was on Sept. 27, 1971, that the assets of J&J Soft Pretzel Co. were purchased at a bankruptcy auction by Gerald B. Shreiber. At that time, the company had eight employees and sales of less than $400,000 annually. Today, as J&J celebrates 40 years of record sales, it has more than 3,000 employees, sales of nearly $750 million and distribution throughout both national and international markets.
J&J has remained debt-free all these years as well. Its expanding portfolio of products includes soft pretzels, frozen desserts, churros, funnel cakes, snacks, cookies and baked goods..
“While we are deeply proud of our company’s success and its employees’ accomplishments, we are equally optimistic about our future for continued growth and success,” reports Gerald Shreiber, president and CEO of J&J Snack Foods Corp. “J&J is a rare combination of special niche products, complemented by talented people with superior work ethics sharing common dreams and goals.”
