Smithfield - Nate & Colleen Roby

Updated: Feb 13, 2019

“Brought on by a simple twist of fate,” are words that you’ll find on the wall of Simple Twist, a restaurant known for its creative, farm to table, food.

It was a twist of fate when owners Nate and Colleen Roby opened their Downtown Smithfield location, the business’ second, in May 2015. The two quickly became Downtown Smithfield champions, embracing our community, recognizing its potential, and eager to participate in promotions and helping establish Smithfield’s reputation as a destination for dining.

In May of 2017, the Robys expanded their business when Simple Twist Tap Room & Bottle Shop opened across the street. With a passion for fresh and local food and a vision for the future, Nate and Colleen have created a gathering place for the community. The Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation very much appreciates their investment and support, and we are proud to recognize them as our North Carolina Main Street Champions!
