In the late summer of 2011 two Bulgarian tourists Stella & Ivo saw for the first time in their lives the Kurtos Kalacs pastry. This happened in the heart of Transylvania, at the entrance of the mythical Dracula Castle. It was a love at first sight and bite! Then an idea was born - to make this pastry popular all over the world. The enthusiasts developed their business idea bringing it from a single thought to a working business model.

About Kurtos Kalacs
Kurtos Kalacs also known as Kürtőskalács, Chimney Cake, Chimney Cone, Trdelnik, Makara, Baumstriezel... is an irresistible, delicious, aromatic, usually warm pastry... in which you just fall in love at first bite... In most of the tourist travel notes from the land of Transylvania, you will find stories about it. The Kurtos is made from entirely natural ingredients, wrapped like a ribbon around a wooden roller, heavily sprinkled with sugar and baked above an open fire or in specially designed ovens. While it's still hot it could be covered with sprinkles or left in its natural look with shiny and crispy covering over the golden crust. The strange name derives from the Hungarian word kürtő that refers to chimney, because of its shape and the smoke coming out of it when it is hot. Kürtőskalács is a national Hungarian pastry.
Nowadays you can find the Chimney Cake in over 70 countries.

About the Frozen Dough
In early 2012 we expanded our Kurtos business to the next level - we created a production line for frozen Kurtos dough balls in Gabrovo, Bulgaria. We invested in the latest equipment for dough-kneading, dough-shaping and shock-freezing. The final result is a high-quality product - frozen dough, which is preferred by Bulgarian Kurtos Kalacs bakers.
Besides the Kurtos making skills we also direct your attention to a number of different ways you can grow your Kurtos Kalacs business. You can establish your own Chimney Cake bakery fast, easy, with minimal investments. This could be a retail business with only one bake & sale location, selling Kurtos Kalacs directly to the consumers...
You can establish a wholesale business with pre-made Chimney Cake frozen dough intended for single Chimney Cake vendors...
In both cases we will support you with our own know-how, because we have already passed through this way. Everything that we offer (ovens, accessories, mix, frozen dough, knowledge, tutorials and training) has been upgraded and improved over the years, because of our Chimney Cake passion and wide experience.
