PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — J&J Snack Foods Corp. has acquired Chicago-based Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1995 by Kim and Scott Hostein, Kim & Scott’s makes soft pretzels using all-natural, premium ingredients. The company’s products are distributed throughout food service and retail channels.

“We are pleased to welcome the Kim & Scott’s family into our organization,” said Gerald B. Shreiber, president and chief executive officer of J&J Snack Foods Corp. “We look forward to expanding the brand in the future.”

Kim & Scott’s earlier this year closed Café Twist, its restaurant in Lincoln Park in Chicago, to focus on the food service market.
