Born right here in Portland – Twisted Croissant bakes up irresistible croissants, cruffins, and cruff puffs.
Zupan’s is excited to be featuring these pastries in our bakery department.
Owned & operated by Kurt Goddard, Twisted Croissant pastries are handcrafted in small batches using grass-fed European–style butter, locally sourced flour, eggs & produce. A former pastry chef at Salty’s, Kurt watched the croissant donut and cruffin dominate the world pastry scene and was inspired. His first attempt was a raspberry and vanilla cruffin that he thought was horrible, but his colleagues loved it.
Following that single-batch, Kurt began spending all his spare time recipe developing and testing until he created the perfect flaky, buttery, airy, and delicious dough. After achieving this, he couldn’t stop and in 2017 Twisted Croissant secured a spot at the Beaverton Farmers Market. A year later Goddard and his wife were working three farmers markets, saving up for their eventual brick-and-mortar location that opened in September 2019.
