Owners Jimmy Chapman and Kristy Rose celebrate after cutting the ribbon to open Twisted Sugar in downtown Belmont.
Belmont Twisted Sugar may be first of multiple locations
The new Twisted Sugar gourmet cookie and sodas franchise is unique on Main Street in Belmont, where most other businesses are independently owned and operated shops and restaurants.
But customers already are discovering the taste of the change is sweet. Twisted Sugar specializes in a wide variety of fresh-baked cookies loaded with icing and toppings and also serves custom sodas with flavors added.
Twisted Sugar is a small chain founded in 2015 and now with 6 stores in Utah and Arizona. Jimmy Chapman, who owns a fabrication business in Cherryville, and his fiancé Kristy Rose brought Twisted Sugar to the East Coast, with Belmont as the first of what they hope will grow to 10 locations in western North Carolina.
They celebrated the grand opening with a Chamber ribbon-cutting ceremony on Aug. 12, 2020.
In addition to the retail shop, they plan to offer mobile ordering and curbside pickup as well as catering for weddings and other special events. Open 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily. More information available on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/NCtwistedsugar, or at 704.829.3939.
