Miguel Angel Barragan from the small community of Santa Ines Michoacán, in 1984 moved to Guadalajara Jalisco. That day the new adventure in the Ice cream business started, when in a partnership with a member of his family acquired the first Popsicle Business (Paletería). After a few years decides to leave the business in his uncles care since he wants to migrate to USA looking for new opportunities.
Always known for his wish to find new horizons, in 2017 open up the first of the Popaletas store in Gonzales, Louisiana. Rapidly becoming the number one and favorite ice cream shop in the State. A year later in 2018, with dedication and hard work he opened the second store in Baton Rouge. In the year 0f 2020 the Gonzales Store had new ownership keeping the Baton Rouge store only.
In January of 2022 with a new vision and a great family help, we opened a second location in Baton Rouge. The one became a great success thanks to our excellent clientele that loves our artesian ice cream and popsicles.
