Twisted Steaks

New Egypt, NJ

Our love of food had us travelling to different cities such as Philly, New York City, and Las Vegas. We attended markets, festivals, and fairs . Throughout our travels, we often dreamed of having our own food company.

In 2016, we decided to turn this dream into a reality and started making a plan. We wanted a product that was new and exciting. After doing months of research, we found our niche: twisted pretzels. When we tried our favorite food, cheesesteaks, on the twisted pretzel, we knew we had found something special.The salty, crunchy goodness of the warm pretzel sets off and holds the juicy cheesesteak for a true regional culinary delight. And thus, Twisted Steaks was born.
