About Us

The first Michoacana Ice Cream Shop appeared in the 1940 in a little town in Michoacan Mexico called Tocumbo. Today, the name La Michoacana is synonym with Hand-made Paletas and Ice Cream made with 100% Fresh fruits and people can find Michoacanas all over Mexico.

La Michoacana came to the United States to the State of California and has been expanding deliciously through out every State with different name variations but always with the unique flavor and taste that differentiates La Michoacana.

La Michoacana PLUS, one of those name variations, offers the same quality products as the original Michoacana in Mexico. La Michoacana PLUS became a reality in the city of Chicago in the State of Illinois thanks to Mr. Alfredo Sanchez.

Later, with the help of Mr. Juan Torrijos, Mr. Sanchez soon expanded La Michoacana Plus North to the State of Wisconsin in the year 2012.

Mr. Juan Torrijos, a well-known restaurateur in the city of Milwaukee, continued the tradition of producing High Quality Ice Cream and Paletas and opened up a second location in the south side of Milwaukee… at the end of the year 2018 Mr. Martin Aranda-Cardenas took over the operations of both stores and has since then worked hard with the help of his wife and daughters as well as all its employees to keep that Mexican tradition going by producing the same High quality products and snacks that not only the Hispanic community knows very well but also attracting people from other cultures and regions.
