Bacio makes food approachable, feeding customers’ desire to experience, discover and learn. But, when faced with restrictions on serving capacity due to Covid, the management team of this Twin Cities restaurant felt the need to create new ways to serve customers, including curbside delivery, to-go meals and cocktails, and the purchase of a food truck (the largest in the state). Now mobile, the restaurant has a new way to diversify its menu and expand its customer base across the metro area. With an inviting name, and truck design that’s as tasty the food it serves, Bacio can serve any location or event with a custom offering. Whether a simple picnic barbecue or a multi-course wedding reception, Bacio-A-Go-Go’s mobile kitchen mixes hospitality and fresh food with versatility and a side of fun.

Creating a “sense of place” not only offered a truer connection to its provenance but also created a proprietary expression to unify the brand’s portfolio. An illustrative interpretation of the North leans heavily on Caribou’s distinctive blue color. The result is a strongly-branded expression that’s premium, with a playful personality.
