‘’El Kiosko frutas y helados’’ is an ice-cream (helados), fruit salad (ensalada de frutas), natural juices (jugos naturales), milk shakes (malteadas) and Mexican style snack bar (no Tex-Mex) franchise, well known as “El Kiosko”. We are pioneers in this concept, introducing our delightful TROLES (water based snow texture ice-cream/raspa made of 100% fruit) in Texas.
With our extensive menu, experience, our love for the art of icecream (helados) & ice popsicles (paletas de hielo) & our tasteful combination of flavors and textures, we convey the purest essence of generations of Mexican food artisans and its traditional flavors.
More than 15 years ago, with an original recipe since inception and artisan procedures, we decided to stay away from the industrial processes to make us unique, that’s why we don’t make frozen yogurt, because each natural product made in our ice cream manufacturing facility is handcrafted & each healthy snack made with the best fruit in our stores is made from scratch.
Our El Kiosko Menu has more than 100 products, we have the greatest variety of flavors for your taste, like our famous Explosion (aka Mangonada), our Chamoyadas, ice popsicles (paletas de hielo), fruit salads (ensalada de frutas), milkshakes (malteadas), white or yellow corn in a cup (elote desgranado), whole corn (elote entero), crazy corn (elote loko), juices (jugos), chips preparados, rusas, & many more snacks that you can find in all our categories that are part of our menu at El Kiosko.

In 2006 Gaby O. Jimenez established the first store of ”El Kiosko” in the north of Houston, TX; her intention was to offer her customers not only artisanal authentic Mexican products prepared at the moment, but also a comfortable, clean and family oriented environment with an exceptional services. The concept was so successful that a few years later ”El Kiosko” decided to start franchising.
Gaby was born in Mexico and grew up in the family business of production and distribution of ice-cream in the city of Monterrey, N.L. where she learned from her parents that constancy, hard-work, customer service and consistency are the key of success. Having this rooted formation on her, Gaby decided to expand the family tradition in Houston, TX adding her personal vision to the business model that she learned at a very young age. Thus, she faced the challenge of introducing the Troles, Mexican ice-cream and artisanal popsicles into the Texas market, therefore Gaby created a particular concept in the menu influenced by her parents’ heritage from Jalisco, Mexico.
The close and friendly treatment towards customers has been crucial to become what El Kiosko is today!
We keep the creativity, essence and hard work of our founders. The Mexican tradition for tasty food not only in ice cream, popsicles and fruit, but also in Mexican snacks such as Tortas (Mexican sandwich), mexican style hot dogs, burritos, flour tacos for all kinds of cravings. All made with love using the best raw materials, prepared the moment your order from scratch to give you the freshest experience.
