Pete's Pops focuses on activating unused spaces, like an old movie theater and deer processing facility
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Pete’s Pops started out as a small, local popsicle stand just eight years ago. In that time, it’s grown from selling a dozen popsicles a day to selling thousands. You can find unique flavors like snap pea lemonade, sweet corn and blackberry swirl, and even a peanut butter and jelly popsicle.
While the business is growing, Pete Cooney, the owner of Pete’s Pops, has made it his mission to invest in communities.
He likes to pick unique locations for his popsicle shops, like the ticket booth at the Fox Bay Theater in Whitefish Bay and a former deer processing facility in West Allis.
