Anne Beiler: Baltimore, MD

  • By ABC.com


Auntie Anne's Pretzels founder, Anne Beiler, travels to Baltimore, Maryland and visits some of the poorest sections of the city to find people and organizations in need of her help. On her journey, a number of grass-roots organizations touch and move her in amazing ways, including Casey Cares Foundation, a group that helps sick children and their families cope with illness, The Rose Street Community Center, which provides community and social services to combat violence and homelessness in the East Baltimore area, as well as Movable Feast, a non-profit organization that provides meals and food to people who cannot provide for themselves. After spending a week in Baltimore, Beiler shares the surprise of a lifetime with these philanthropic organizations, on the Season Premiere of Secret Millionaire, SUNDAY, AUGUST 4 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

 
Anne Beiler began twisting pretzels in 1987 to support her husband's vision to offer free counseling services in the Amish community where she grew up in rural Pennsylvania. What began as a single farmer's market stand grew into Auntie Anne's Inc., the world's largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise with more than 1,200 locations worldwide. In 2005 Anne sold Auntie Anne's and authored Twist of Faith, a revealing look at her life as a wife, mother and entrepreneur. Today she is a highly sought after public speaker, inspiring audiences around the world. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Jonas, and is the mother of two daughters and proud grandmother of four grandchildren.
