Kilwins Comes To Myrtle Beach!

Kilwins Comes To Myrtle Beach!
(For Immediate Release)

Kilwins Chocolate, Fudge & Ice Cream, a local favorite from Michigan to Florida, has opened their latest store at Broadway at the Beach 1316 Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach! The custom-designed confectionary will offer made-in-store Fudge, Caramels, Brittle and Caramel Corn, along with 32 flavors of Kilwins “Original Recipe” Ice Cream and hand-crafted fine chocolates, all in a unique Americana setting! Their offering also includes gourmet ice Cream Cakes, in-store and take-home Hot Chocolates, and hand-dipped made-in-store treats.

Local owners Jeanne and Chris Feldman, along with their two school-aged children, Jackson and Reese, have fulfilled a long-time dream of returning to a place they cherish, Myrtle Beach, in order to open their dream Kilwins store!
After living in the area from ’93 to ‘05 they developed a love for the Grand Strand and are ecstatic to be so close to their friends and family again!

In construction for the last several months, their Kilwins store features a unique look put together by the Feldmans, so that their Kilwins store is a special part of the Myrtle Beach community. They have been trained by Kilwins in Petoskey, MI to create hundreds of confections right in their own open-store kitchen, and look forward to creating a special experience for locals and vacationers alike.

Chris attended Coastal Carolina University and served as a local police officer with Horry County Police Department, as well as the City of Myrtle Beach Police Department. Jeanne worked for nearly a decade at Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (HTC) in Conway. Their knowledge, experience, and connections from those jobs would prove instrumental for them returning to Myrtle Beach taking shape in a fascinating new capacity, as Owners/Operators of Kilwins, located at Broadway at the Beach. Their retail neighbors at Broadway include Harley Davidson, Sparkles, Ron Jon’s, Key West Hat Company, and Boardwalk Winery.
