VALPARAISO | A new soft pretzel shop is set to open Nov. 20 at 151 W. Lincolnway. 

Ben’s Soft Pretzels announced the location of its fifth franchise pretzel bakery, making it the 11th store under the Ben’s Soft Pretzels brand.

This location is owned and operated by Tom and Lisa Noak, of Noak Inc. The Noaks came out of retirement after tasting a Ben’s pretzel at Lighthouse Mall in Michigan City. They now own that shop as well.

The Noaks had retired to Las Vegas after selling their chain of convenience stores in Northwest Indiana.

“Once we had a taste of this pretzel, we knew this was a business we had to get into,” Tom Noak said. 

Ben’s Soft Pretzels features jumbo soft pretzels and offers an array of dipping sauces and beverages, as well as pretzel dogs and Italian and ham and cheese pretzel pockets.
