After 24 seasons on the Ocean City Boardwalk, Philly Twist Pretzels and its sister shop, Philly Twist Grille are closing, blaming the coronavirus.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Philly Twist wrote,

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the coronavirus has claimed another victim Phillytwist Pretzels and Phillytwist Grill Will be closing.
I want to thank all my family and friends past customers and current customers that have supported us through the many years for your friendship and support through the years.

Gov. Murphy allowed most Ocean City Boardwalk shops to begin reopening last weekend. Apparently, that was too late for Philly Twist.

Philly Twist, at 7th and the Boardwalk, in front of the Boardwalk Adventures Water Park, formally Gillian’s Island Water Park, was set to begin its 25th year selling its popular soft pretzels on the boards in Ocean City.  Philly Twist Grille next door was known for their funnel cakes and fried Oreos.

The owners of the businesses invited customers to come see them at their other Boardwalk business.

The good news is you can  still come and visit us at Taters famous fries on the north end of the boardwalk a few doors down from wonderland.
We look forward to seeing your smiling face is and catching up God bless and stay healthy
