Located at 11106 Highway 62, they are open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. 62 Twist has been open for seven years and have proven to be a local favorite. Owners, Chris and Lisa Jones had always wanted to open an ice cream store, so they did just that.
“We originally bought a feed store just down the road, about 20 years ago. We bought this land and built the building about 7 years ago. We combined our feed store and our new ice cream store into one building,” Jones said. 62 Twist didn’t always have a dining room for customers to sit down and enjoy their meals or ice cream. They started out with just a walk-up service and a drive-through window.
Although 62 Twist is mainly known for their ice cream, they have so much more to offer to their customers.
