About our company
Pals Group Inc. is a family owned and operated business that for a decade has been dedicated to serve a diverse ethnic audience including Caribbean and Hispanic groups locally and nationwide, and fulfill the growing demand for superior food products. Our company’s goal since day one has been to excel in customer service, quality goods at competitive prices, unparalleled selection and availability.
We are driven by our values, our heritage and traditions, and we work hard to preserve them from generation to generation. In an effort to conserve our identity and backgrounds, we labeled our products with the Creole-Haitian expression “Lakay” which captures a “sense of belonging”, of “home” within this particular ethnic group. Today everyone knows us as Lakay and everyone proudly identifies with our highly regarded brand!
Equipped with an experienced, dedicated and diverse team, our company understands the needs and challenges within our industry, and we respond to each of our customers’ needs on time, with proven solutions and with the support and attention they deserve.
Customers in the food service and retail industry, know that they can rely on our team to supply and distribute superior quality products that end consumers and patrons will enjoy in their daily life, and that they will feel happy and safe to share with their loved ones.
Our Past and future
Pals Group Inc., was founded back in 2005 and within a year it gained rapid recognition as a result of the superiority of our products coupled with the quality of our services. In 2006, we opened our doors to the public and we expanded our product line to cater to a broader ethnic group including Caribbean’s as well as Hispanics, who for years had and continued to be in search of traditional food items that were hard to find in the Miami area.
We developed our own product brand called Lakay, and with the expansion of our product line, it was also necessary to expand our facility, warehouse and production plant.
Now, a little over a decade since our foundation, what started as a small family business has become a successful nationwide food manufacturer and supplier, serving a wide variety of clients ranging from supermarkets, to grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurant chains as well as other food service operators.
Our dream of serving the Caribbean as well as the Hispanic markets by bringing a taste of home and preserving traditions has surpassed all of our expectations! We continue to look forward to our future growth, product innovation and to conquering palates for many generations to come.
Our company is socially responsible and a proud supporter of programs, institutions, schools, activities and any efforts that will benefit families and communities locally and internationally. We have a special bond with our Caribbean backgrounds and are actively involved in programs that support the Haitian culture.
We take great pride in mentioning that our team was fully involved in assisting hurricane victims in Haiti, and that we continuously strive to help our countrymen and the less fortunate.
We understand and recognize that as leaders in our industry, we must set an example and give back to those in need as often as possible, and we plan on continuing to make a difference as much as we can.
In addition, we are environmentally conscious and we strive to follow and incorporate green practices in our daily operations. We know that with our efforts, we will inspire and positively impact the youth as well as future generations that depend on us, and that are affected by our behavior.
