Twist of Faith: The Story of Anne Beiler, Founder of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels
BY: ANNE BEILER WITH SHAWN SMUCKER
Twist of Faith is an inspiring look at the life of a woman who went from an 8th-grade Amish education to founding Auntie Anne's, Inc., the world's largest pretzel franchise.
It was a short distance from Anne Beiler's little town in the heart of Amish country to her humble farmer's stand that would become the first Auntie Anne's Pretzel store. But it was a long life journey for Anne to get there. Twist of Faith is more than the inspiring story of building a successful business; it's a personal journey of faith and forgiveness.
From the death of her young daughter to surviving the rigors of building a successful business to struggles with depression, Anne offers a deeply personal view of her life. She says, "If you knew my life and understood where I came from, you would agree that Auntie Anne's, Inc. is a modern day business miracle."
