Vicky Bakery Opens New Shop in Fort Lauderdale

Vicky Bakery recently opened its newest location in Downtown Fort Lauderdale across from Huizenga Plaza at 4 West Las Olas Blvd.

“We live and breathe South Florida and have called this our home for a very long time,” Alico Pina says, co-owner of Vicky Bakery Las Olas. “We know the people in and around downtown Fort Lauderdale are going to absolutely love our world-famous pastelitos, croquetas, café, and other amazing and authentic Cuban bakery items. Created in our own kitchens every day, our bakers and chefs prepare an extensive variety of breads, pastries, desserts, breakfast items, sandwiches, cakes, coffee and more so we have something to satisfy every appetite, whether it’s a sweet indulgence or even a loaf of our healthier, vegan Cuban bread.”   

Pina and her business partners Nosbely Toledo and Nosdiel Silva have been active brand ambassadors of Vicky Bakery even before signing the rights to develop the Las Olas location. The business partners own six Vicky Bakeries in total, including locations in Davie, Miramar, Florida International University’s (FIU) North Campus, FIU South Campus, University of Miami and the new downtown Fort Lauderdale site. The entrepreneurs have a seventh Vicky Bakery under construction in Coral Springs that they plan to open by the end of the year.

“When we opened our first location in Miramar in 2016, we could have never imagined our success today as multi-unit operators of Vicky Bakery,” Toledo says, co-owner of Vicky Bakery Las Olas. “It’s really a testament to the incredible menu but also to the systems and procedures that Vicky Bakery has established over 50 years in business. That kind of tradition and operational experience has proven invaluable as we continue to grow, opening Las Olas and Coral Springs later this year. Developing Downtown Fort Lauderdale was an easy decision because we knew people can’t resist our specialty Cuban pastries made with secret family recipes passed down from abuelito to abuelo and now on to our generation.”

Vicky Bakery began with a vision in 1972 by founders Antonio and Gelasia Cao, who decided to open a bakery and make pastries the way they first learned in Cuba. Its Cuban roots and belief in quality, variety, convenience and experience have helped the brand expand throughout Florida. It has grown to nearly 20 locations across South Florida, with new bakeries soon opening in Palm Beach, Orlando and southwest Florida, among other markets.

“There is something timeless and classic about our menu. To this day, we haven’t changed the recipes because our customers, no matter which location they visit, always tell us it’s the best they’ve ever eaten,” Nosdiel Silva says, co-owner of Vicky Bakery. “Everyone can relate to our menu because there is authenticity behind it. Once you bite into our crunchy and pillowy pastelito, you are automatically transported back to the original La Vencadora bakery in Havana, Cuba, where Antonio and Gelasia, our founders, first fell in love and learned to bake before fleeing communism’s grip on the island. We’re absolutely thrilled to be open in Downtown Fort Lauderdale and introduce the community to Vicky Bakery.”

The new Vicky Bakery in Downtown Fort Lauderdale is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To learn more about Vicky Bakery, visit vickybakery.com.
