Hot Krust Panini Kitchen

407-355-7768 • http://www.hotkrust.cominfo@hotkrust.com
8015 Turkey Lake Road, Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32819

Hot Krust is a panini sandwich kitchen in Orlando, offering delicious panini sandwiches, baked (not fried) sweet potatoes, salads, cookies and brownies. Its recipes call for only the freshest gourment ingredients. When patrons taste Hot Krust’s fresh ingredients, they will immediately notice the difference and will not want to go anywhere else. The idea behind Hot Krust is really simple – freshly made panini sandwiches using high-quality products at affordable prices. And if “freshly made” is part of Hot Krust Panini Kitchen’s concept, processed meats should not be part of its panini. Therefore, the decision was made, and the mission became to “Kreate” a panini using ONLY freshly roasted meats.
