In the summer of 2004, Paleterias Tropicana began with a single concept: Serving homemade, authentic Mexican ice cream to a growing Hispanic market. We decided to open our first paleteria, a small but pleasant and friendly place where people could enjoy a flavorful and 100% natural ice cream, Michoacan style.

Paleterias Tropicana didn’t stop there! In addition to the authentic fruit-laden Mexican ice cream and paletas freshly made on site, Paleterias Tropicana now offers an extensive menu of fruit cocktails and juices, smoothies, churros, and traditional Mexican lunch and dinner items. Starting with the original flagship store in Kansas City’s Westside community, today Paleterias Tropicana operates three company-owned stores and one partnership store in Wichita, KS.
