Dutch Country Hand-Rolled Soft Pretzels is owned by Austin Groff, who has operated it for the last six years as a food trailer business, which he will maintain.

Groff bought the Mount Joy property in 2014. He had been planning since then on opening a retail shop that can augment his seasonal operation selling at festivals and fairs.

Groff is helped by a handful of employees, including several family members.
