Clemson Grad To Bring Kilwins Ice Cream, Chocolate To Downtown Greenville

Posted: Updated:

Greenville will get a fresh, new taste of ice cream and chocolate just in time for the summer as Kilwins announced that they are opening a new store in downtown's NOMA Square.

The announcement came Tuesday as the 66-year-old candy and ice cream store chain added its name as the latest shop to be enticed to the North End Of Main Street renovation project. From handmade chocolate and fudge to caramel apples, popcorn and favorite flavors of ice cream such as chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, Kilwins will bring a wide variety of treats to downtown patrons.

For the store's co-owner and manager, Ashley Adams, it is a dream come true.

"Having graduated from Clemson, I know Greenville well and I am thrilled to be opening a business in such a dynamic downtown area," said Adams, who is 23 years old. "Local residents and visitors alike won't soon forget the truffles, candy, fudge, caramel, and ice cream. Especially the ice cream. Kilwins and Greenville will be a perfect match."

And Adams should know.

While at Clemson, she received a $10,000 grant to start a Farmer's Market. And its success has been unparalleled. Now she is hoping to do the same thing, this time with the help of her parents, who are her business partners.

"My dad and I are starting this," Adams said. "The smell of the chocolate and the taste of the ice cream is unbelievable. The quality of the product speaks for itself."

Greenville Mayor Knox White agrees.

"Kilwins is a great addition to NOMA Square and will be a destination retailer for residents and visitors. They will serve as another anchor to the continued growth of the North Main area."

With a theatrical kitchen that will allow people to watch the ice cream and chocolate delights being made, Kilwins is just the latest  business venture to be announced for NOMA Square. Roost Restaurant has already opened and Kilwins will be located near the recently installed Orbital Trio sculpture.
