LocoPops is best known for where we began: our pops!

In 2004, LocoPops founder and owner Summer Bicknell traveled to Tlazazalca, Mexico to learn how to make Mexican-style popsicles, known as paletas.  When considering where to open her own business, a fortuitous stop for gas on a road trip brought her to Durham, North Carolina. Durham felt like home from the start and LocoPops opened Memorial Day weekend in 2005.


The name, LocoPops, was inspired by what her parents thought of her plans: they thought she'd lost her mind, or 'gone loco'!
