Kilwin's of Ludington is owned by Sue and Les Russell. Sue combined Kilwin's with her existing gift basket business, Sweet Apple Sue's. Once a booming lumber town, Ludington also has a rich maritime heritage. These days, the miles of beaches and sand dunes lure summer resorters and vacationers. Kilwin's is another of the city's attractions. "I personally believe that Kilwin's has the best ice cream and fudge I've ever tasted anywhere," Sue said. She and Les have two children, Lindsey and Jonathan, who will also attest to the irresistible pull of Kilwin's chocolates, fudge and ice cream!
