OUR SWEET STORY
An admitted chocoholic, Jill Frechtman began making chocolate covered pretzels in her mom’s kitchen at a young age.
Always a creative soul in and out of the kitchen, Jill earned a BFA from Syracuse University, and went on to work as a jr. art director for a large advertising agency in New York. In 2001, Jill’s edible art became an instant hit at the office holiday party. After much encouragement from friends, family, and coworkers, an inspirational book featured on Oprah, and an initial investment of $300 from her grandmother, Fretzels by Jill Frechtman was born.
Using her creativity and background in design, Jill perfected various pretzel creations and designed her own logo and packaging, turning her passion and pastime into one sweet business.
