About Paparazzi: The children of the owners, Shala (15), Davonte (10) and RoMello (9), had the desire to become entrepreneurs. Being in a household that loves ice cream year-round, they wanted an ice cream cart to sell ice cream in variety of flavors. While searching for a mobile cooler, a Fried Ice Cream Machine was stumbled upon. Their parents purchased the machine, they practiced and perfected their craft in their living room then became licensed through the state of Wisconsin to sell at events and fairs. After sharing pics of ice cream from a few events, the request and inquires scoured social media asking where to purchase. Soon after, a location was found and the rest is history. “We love to bring the creativity out of customers, including kids. They be surprised and love the taste they come up with when they build a selfie! That’s what make our customer stars to us, and it deserves a picture.” –Davonte (10)
