Watford City’s Twist 2.0 had a grand opening Friday, July 22 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. CT.
Located at 501 6th Ave SE, Watford City, the event had several prizes including Twist 2.0 tank tops, t-shirts, and gift cards. The restaurant will be offering some different specials including slushies, appetizers, sandwiches, and a variety of ice-cream toppings.
“We are excited for people to come in and enjoy the new atmosphere and ice-cream,” said Julie Grotte, Twist 2.0 manager.
“Everyone in the area is just so excited to have the Twist back.” The restaurant was known to be a local favorite since the 1980s but closed around 10 years ago.
The Farmers Union Oil Company, Watford City, brought back the Twist as the “Twist 2.0” on June 1, 2022. Its menu is almost spot on to the original menu featuring shakes, malts, the famous Twist burger, and much more.
“We are known for the twist burger, but we don’t stop there.”
Since its opening, the restaurant has hired around 20 people.
“It has been very successful. We are lucky to have hired 18 to 23 people, all of which are still with us,” added Grotte.
The restaurant hopes to incorporate some new soups and sandwiches in the fall and winter. They will also have their drive thru operational in the near future.
