Havana Club and Vicky Bakery Holiday Collaboration

Havana Club and Vicky Bakery Holiday Collaboration

A family tradition meets a holiday tradition with Havana Club Rum and Vicky Bakery.

Two family businesses that share the fate of many other Cuban families, leaving the country but never the culture. Two family recipes passed down through generations, that now come together to bring you this Caribbean-soaked, limited-edition rum cake. Havana Club tasked TEAM with designing the cake’s custom packaging and crafting the partnership’s messaging.

Sold in Vicky Bakery locations throughout South Florida during the holiday season (including our local Fort Lauderdale HQ location), this special collaboration is made with the Real Havana Club Rum and filled with Cuban pride.

Lending a Hand: Hurricane Ian Relief

Lending a Hand: Hurricane Ian Relief

After Hurricane Ian left widespread damage throughout South West Florida, we gathered a TEAM and headed out to help the relief efforts in Ft. Meyers. One of the hardest hit areas, the community needed as many hands as possible to help those impacted by the storm. With a few grills and a can-do attitude, we set up shop in a mobile community center and served over 500 burgers and 300 hot dogs for those displaced by Ian, as well as first responders and security personnel.

We are proud that our small gesture put a smile on people’s faces and that we joined the community in rallying together for our own. Our heart goes out to all those impacted by the storm. Always Florida Strong.
