Three Brothers Bakery

Houston institution captures fresh buzz in the news cycle.

The Client

Three  Brothers  Bakery  is  a  fifth-generation  business  with three  locations  in  Houston  and  an  online  store that  ships  nationally.  A  Houston  staple  since  1949,  the  bakery  is  best  known  for  its  award-winning  pecan  pie,  challah,  rye  bread,  gingerbread  men,  and  cupcakes.

The Obstacle

The  company  desired  a  fresh  idea  that  could  drive  immediate  in-store  sales  during  a  slow  sales month  while  staying  true  to  its  voice.  Integrate  sought  to  capitalize on  the  hype  around  the  2016 presidential  election,  but  the  real  test  was  cutting  through  the  noise  of  the  political  news  cycle.
