The 19-store, Albuquerque-grown restaurant chain Twisters has been sold to a Houston company, according to a report in the Albuquerque Journal.
Twisters was purchased this month by VKC Delights, part of the VKC Group, which manages more than 130 restaurants in the Houston area. Twisters will be added to that company's roster of fast-food operations like Subway, TCBY and Mooyah Burger, Fries & Shakes.
