LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - October 8, 2010

WGAL reports that the company confirmed Thursday night that it will be sold to Atlanta-based Focus Brands, an affiliate of the equity firm Roark Capital Group, with the deal expected to be finalized next month. A purchase price was not disclosed.

There was no immediate word if any of the company's 220 full-time and 119 part-time employees would be affected.

Lancaster-based Auntie Anne's says it is the world's largest franchiser of hand-rolled soft pretzels with more than 1,000 locations worldwide.
