It all began in 2014...
by two young professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit, a single tricycle and a dream to bring joy to the people.
A Dream Come True
Believe it or not, the creative minds behind these delicious desserts have no experience in gastronomy whatsoever. "When we first started, we knew absolutely nothing about cooking, much less desserts," shares founder, Ramón Ortiz, who actually has a Ph.D. in pharmacy. What the Señor Paleta founders did know was that they wanted to create something that brings joy to people, and what better way than pleasing one’s sweet tooth? In 2014, the founders started off with a single tricycle, and the rest is paleta history. Señor Paleta combines the traditional paleta experience with Caribbean flavors and has since become the number one paleta company in Puerto Rico.
We specialize in smiles.
The heart & soul behind Señor Paleta
CEO & Co-founder
From Aguada, P.R, Ramón received a Ph.D in Pharmacy in 2009 but found himself interested in business development. In 2014, he had the idea to develop the Paleta experience in PR by creating a unique brand with a Caribbean twist, giving birth to the success that is Señor Paleta.
CFO & Co-founder
Born in San Juan, P.R., Jennifer completed her doctorate in Medical Sciences in 2012. While working as a physician advisor, she cofounded Señor Paleta and four years later, decided to dedicate herself full time to the company serving as the CFO, and making the company what it is today.
Andrea was born in San Juan, P.R. She began her studies to become a lawyer until accepting that her destiny was in the kitchen. She then moved to Mexico to complete a MA in Pastry Studies at the Escuela ESPAISUCRE de Saguer y Butrón. She now owns her own pastry business and is the culinary master mind behind each of the Señor Paleta creations.
