Welcome to Kilwins Waterside Place in Lakewood Ranch!
Lakewood Ranch is a best-selling master-planned community that spans more than 31,000 acres, and Waterside Place is the newest village in Lakewood Ranch, with unique commercial, retail and office spaces, diverse dining options, an eight-acre park, miles of natural trails, and more than 800 urban-style apartments and townhomes.
Kilwins Waterside Place owners, Kate & Todd LaBonte, with Tricia & Jerry Farrington, are excited to provide Kilwins high-quality products to the residents of Lakewood Ranch. The LaBontes have been Kilwins Franchisees since 2007, when they opened their first Kilwins store in Tradition, FL. They also own a Kilwins store in Clearwater Beach, FL and have opened Kilwins Waterside Place in partnership with their friends, the Farringtons, who are responsible for day-to-day operations of Kilwins Waterside Place.
Tricia & Jerry Farrington are originally from Massachusetts, and they first experienced Kiwins products when visiting the LaBontes, and they were impressed with the quality of both the Ice Cream and the Chocolates. Tricia and Kate had discussed partnering on a Kilwins store and traveled to explore multiple opportunities. When they discovered the Waterside Place location in Lakewood Ranch, they knew it would be the perfect place for a Kilwins store. The Farringtons had been contemplating moving to Florida once Jerry retired, and when researching the Lakewood Ranch area, it promised to be a great place to live and work!
Like all Kilwins stores, Kilwins Waterside Place features an open kitchen where customers can watch products being made right before their eyes. The store offers a full assortment of Kilwins Heritage hand-crafted Chocolates, Gourmet Cake & Ice Cream, 32 flavors of Original Recipe Ice Cream, and dozens of made-in-store treats.
The LaBontes & Farringtons invite residents and tourists to stop in and visit the store to try some of their favorite treats, like made-in-store Chocolate Fudge, “The Perfect” Caramel Apples, hand-crafted Caramel Corn & Brittle, Milk Chocolate Cherry Cordials, Chocolate-Dipped Cookies, Toasted Coconut Ice Cream, and dozens of other choices. They hope that customers will return throughout the year to treat family & friends to the Kilwins experience!
