ABOUT Twist and Smash’d Sports

Twist and Smash’d Sports was created by chef Robert Cano and his daughters while on a family vacation to Ecuador in 2010. In Ecuador the family found a small café that sold twisted potatoes. Enchanted by this idea of a potato on a stick, they brought it back to New York and Twist and Smash’d was born. Twist and Smash’d is owned by Cano Ventures Corp, a sister Corporation to Rcano Group which owns and operates Rcano Events. Robert Cano is the president of RCano Events off premise catering company. He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, which means he knows (and loves) food and has led the field in incorporating organic, seasonal, and locally grown ingredients.
