Auntie Anne's founder hurt in motorcycle wreck


This is a funny job - you meet people from all walks of life, from celebrities to nobodies to those in-between, and nearly everyone has an interesting story to tell. One of the in-between folks I once met, in a long-ago job, was Anne Beiler, the founder of Auntie Anne's Pretzels. When I met her, she seemed very Amish: Plain, in both looks and manner. But now she rides motorcycles! And she looks like a hip grandma!

The news out of Lancaster County earlier this week: She wrecked on her motorcycle Saturday after slipping on an oil spot in Gap. She's home recovering from a concussion, broken collarbone, broken rib and facial abrasions. Check out these links for her account of the crash, as well as some history of the pretzel queen.
