PAWTUCKET – Palagis Ice Cream trucks have been driving the streets of Pawtucket and surrounding area, bringing sweets and smiles to members of the local community, for more than 125 years.

Since the pandemic, owner Alex Arteaga says he has made it a mission to give back to the community in various ways. In 2020, they opened their first stationary ice cream shop at the company’s headquarters at 55 Bacon St. in Pawtucket. The location has covered picnic tables for outdoor seating and signs sharing the history of the legacy ice cream shop.
