December Tenant of the Month: Trey & Danielle Lemon of Kilwins Chocolates
Every month we are spotlighting one of our tenants here at The Wharf. This month it’s the fabulous owners of Kilwins, Trey and Danielle Lemon!
Step into their amazing chocolate factory of goodies to learn more about Trey and Danielle, and stop by to try some of their handmade fudge and caramel apples. If you need to warm up during this holiday season, grab some amazing hot chocolate. But let’s be honest—We are in the South, and it may be hot out, so give a scoop of their signature ice cream a try too.
