Twistee Treat (page 2)

(hit "refresh" to get the most recent version of this page; click on photos for larger images)

As described on the first page of this section, Orlando-based Twistee Treat USA revived the brand and began building modern versions of the buildings in 2011. Around 2016, these modern buildings became narrower. They also began having three small counters at the walk-up windows rather than one big built-in counter. The vintage locations had the menu boards built into the buildings. The modern locations have them installed over the walk-up windows. The vintage buildings have rectangular lights under the rim of the cone while the modern buildings have round lights.

The Florida locations below and on the next page are organized alphabetically by city. There are also some copycat buildings at the bottom of this page. The first page of this section shows Twistee Treat buildings outside of Florida.

This vintage Twistee Treat in Fort Myers updated the sign to 36 flavors at some point. I believe all the locations had just six flavors originally. This location competed with a Dairy Queen which was located directly in front of it. In 2014, this Twistee Treat building was either removed or destroyed.

The modern Twistee Treat Homosassa was built around 2016. [map]

The vintage Twistee Treat in Hudson has been there since at least 2009. [map]

The vintage Twistee Treat in Jacksonville was going by the name of Penny Lane Ice Cream N More when this photo was taken in 2009. In 2011, the cone was redecorated as a cupcake when the stand reopened as Short & Sweet, a bakery selling muffins, cookies, and cupcakes. However, by 2015, the bakery had closed and this Twistee was vacant. By 2017, the building was gone. There was another Twistee Treat in Jacksonville which is also gone now.
