When Kathryn Pekarik was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins t-cell lymphoma, her sister Laura baked up 250 cupcakes for a benefit held in Kathryn’s honor. Their friends and family members clamored for more, prompting the Pekarik sisters to start Cupcakes for Courage. The food truck sells fresh-baked cupcakes in such decadent flavors as chocolate bacon beer, with proceeds benefitting cancer charities. Since first hitting the road in their four-wheeled cupcakery, they've been featured on NBC Channel 5 as well as the Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.

When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.
