Well, it just doesn’t get sweeter than this in Upper Merion.
The newest resident at King of Prussia Town Center may not be a restaurant like its surrounding neighbors but it has been stirring up plenty of taste buds since the moment it opened its doors recently. The sweet smell of confections entices, entertains and aroma-therapizes customers with hand-crafted fudge and waffle cones made “theater style” on site, in addition to chocolate, caramel apples, ice cream and a host of other confections in a lively Main Street corner location that faces the center’s vibrant park area, writes Gary Puleo in The Times Herald.
While this is the franchise’s first location in Pennsylvania, co-owner of the UM location Gary Simpson also owned a franchise in Delaware, so he knows he’s mixing up a winning recipe. Simpson’s partners are his brother Glenn and Glenn’s wife Sarah.
“I owned the Rehoboth store for five years, took a break and sold that, and then got excited about bringing the Kilwins brand to Philadelphia. We looked around the whole area for locations, and this one is really unique,” Simpson said.
The chain that bills itself as “sweet in every sense since 1947” is filling a void at King of Prussia Town Center that beautifully complements the existing locations, Simpson said.
“I think the developer always contemplated a Kilwins here; it just took a little time to get it all going,” he noted. “Late in the day is when we do best, so we love the restaurants being nearby. Because even if someone has had dinner and dessert, they’ll come in here and hopefully take products home.”
