Miller Baking to focus on pretzel bread

Miller Baking Company is adding a second production facility that will eventually create 30 jobs in Milwaukee to meet demand for its popular line of Pretzilla pretzel bread, according to the company.

The company will no longer produce non-pretzel products, according to a spokesman.

“I have tremendous gratitude for the generations of customers who have enjoyed Miller Baking products, like rye bread, challah, and donuts,” said owner Brian Miller in a news release. “Their support helped make Pretzilla possible.”

Miller Baking Company is a wholesale bakery based in Milwaukee. Founded in 1923, the company produces Pretzilla pretzel bread, a brand that started in 2010 and today includes Pretzilla burger buns, sausage buns and mini buns.

Pretzilla Burger Buns, Sausage Buns, Mini Buns, Bites (13 count), and Bites (36 count tub) are certified kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council. These products are pareve, containing no meat or dairy. In addition, their kosher products are pas yisroel, according to the company’s site. The Bites with Cheese Dip (6 count) are not kosher.
