A simple twist of fate led Chef Nathan Roby and his wife Colleen to the Wake and Johnston County area a few years ago, and now they own and operate a Simple Twist restaurant in Garner and one in Smithfield. They source fresh ingredients from multi-generational farmer Chris Smith at Smith’s Farms  in an attempt to support the area’s family farming heritage - and to make sure they are providing delicious and healthy food for their neighbors.
