I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things to do when I go shopping at a mall is stop and get myself a soft pretzel with cheese. There's something about the smell of fresh pretzels that make them so hard to resist! Over at Lindale Mall in Cedar Rapids, Pretzelmaker is THE place to stop for a snack. There's a line every time I'm in there!

Earlier this week, Pretzelmaker Cedar Rapids made a big announcement on Facebook. They posted an up-close photo of a drive-thru window and wrote in the caption:

"Attn Cedar Rapids……who is ready to get their favorite pretzel snack without getting out of your car?

Location #2 coming soon….and it’s going to be a DRIVE THRU"

That's right! You will no longer have to go inside the mall to get yourself a soft pretzel! Pretzelmaker is set to open a second location here in Cedar Rapids and you won't even have to park your car and walk in. According to a Cedar Rapids building permit, the new location will be 1115 Blairs Ferry Rd NE. That's right near the Collins Community Credit Union building across from Target.

As of right now, we don't have any more information about the new Pretzelmaker, but we do know that the stand inside Lindale Mall isn't going anywhere. There's also a location at Coral Ridge Mall for shoppers down in Johnson County. We will keep you up to date with the latest information when we have it, but in the meantime you can follow the Pretzelmaker Cedar Rapids Facebook page HERE.
