Our story starts back in 1995 when my family immigrated to the US from a small town in Mexico, Mexticacan, known for making paletas and ice cream. Something unanticipated when moving to the US was the lack of these traditional Mexican treats in the flavors most familiar to us - i.e. Mamey, Cajeta, Gansito, Rompope and more. After searching without avail, we decided to throw ourselves into bringing the flavors of our hometown to the US. Hence the first Helados La Azteca location opened its doors in Waco circa 1998. Growing up, I loved being an "Azteca" helping around the store and knew my family was on to something. I opened our second location in Haltom City in 2016. Since we have expanded our product offerings to include other treats keeping our goal in mind, to share our Mexico inspired experience with the US.
We are in the process of opening our 3rd location in Waco! We will keep you posted.
