As The Twist opened at 6:30am PT, the first customer to make a purchase was local resident Timothy Terral, who stopped by before work at Golden Valley Cable and Communications to try their donuts well Needles City Council Member Tona Belt was the first City of Needles official to try their donuts with her kids.

Both Timothy Terral and Needles City Council Member Tona Belt all tell ZachNews that they loved the donuts from The Twist.

As news spread of the opening of The Twist, people lined up to buy dozes of donuts, and within 3 hours after opening, The Twist sold 10 boxes of a dozen donuts which was a surprised to the employees of how so many people came out within hours of opening.

During the day as more and more people came, more people came for during the lunchtime rush, including Richard Hazlewood and Debbie Hartwick who rolled up in front of The Twist in a red 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454, well employees from the Needles Area Transit, St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station came by to check out to enjoy the new hot spot.
