Unlike his father, Willard Ford chose to pursue a career in the business sector. He is currently the owner of Ludwig Clothing Company and has been successful in this venture.
On June 4, 2009, Ludwig proudly opened the doors of its flagship store at 720 N. Figueroa St in Los Angeles’ Chinatown. This fashion haven brings together premium-casual men’s styles with graphics pulled from Stanley Kubrick’s iconic 1971 film “A Clockwork Orange” as a homage to renowned composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced Willard to shut down his beloved Strong Sports Gym, of which he was the proprietor. His June 2020 Instagram post read, “With nowhere to turn, we’re calling it quits. I appreciate your patronage and friendship.”
Willard Ford is the proud co-owner of the Kim Sing Theater and additionally has an enterprising collaboration with Andrea Ching. Ford&Ching is a cutting-edge design firm run by two owners and boasting offices in Los Angeles and New York City.
The Sale of Kim Sing Theatre
In 2014, Willard Ford, an innovator in the revival of Chinatown in downtown Los Angeles, listed his Kim Sing Theatre property for sale at a price tag of $4.5 million. Constructed over 90 years ago in 1926 and spanning 10,000 square feet housing movies and vaudeville shows alike, this was surely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own such an iconic theater purchased by Willard himself back in 1999.
Ford collaborated with XTen Architects to completely revamp the interior, complete with an internal courtyard, a three-level floor plan, retail areas, and a massive kitchen. The AV room was also added while retaining its original bow truss ceilings and neon cinema marquee sign.
For over a decade, the Ford-owned Kim Sing Theatre showcased an array of special events including fashion shows and furniture displays. In addition to being used as his residence, it was popularly utilized for corporate galas such as Star Wars premieres, Pepsi launches, Grammy parties, and BMW gatherings.
Ford and his team at Flagship marketing and sales agency decided to transition from their old building to the Fashion District in downtown Los Angeles.
Real estate professionals suggested that this Chinatown locale is suitable for a musician who wants to use it as a recording studio, or an actor searching for the perfect downtown residence.
$3.3 Million Sealed the Deal
In 2016, Ash Pathi’s Indra and Co. business group acquired the illustrious Kim Sing Theatre from Willard Ford for a whopping $3.3 million — an impressive 10-fold increase on what Ford had paid back in 1999 ($300,000).
