The struggle to make ends meet continues to affect millions across the nation and hundreds of thousands of South Floridians. In today’s Rebound South Florida, we’re highlighting a local company that’s hiring. Toast Distillers in Miami is looking for employees who are willing to learn and work hard.
As Florida slowly re-opens, job postings are becoming available.
Toast Distillers is a spirits conglomerate headquartered in Miami. The company specializes in developing brands internally, as well as facilitating distribution needs of other brands. In addition to spirits, the company partnered with Veritas Farms to produce hand sanitizers to address the increasing need throughout the nation and they need extra help.
“We're looking for people who have management experience and logistic experience because right now the business is growing faster than we expected. We started with one facility the first week, now we’re in four different production facilities," said DJ.
Dieuveny "DJ" Jean Louis, the founder and CEO of Toast Distillers, says they’re hiring full-time production, sales, and managerial positions.
“We don’t know where everything is going to go but we know we’re not in the short term business because the demand is growing. We’ve been watching what’s happening everyday, we started the business [hand sanitizers] thinking 'let's just do it short term' but now it’s a real commitment that’s going to last from 6 months to a year," said DJ.
Luis Toledo was a restaurant manager at Kuba Cabana in Doral, but lost his job in the midst of the pandemic.
Like millions across the nation and hundreds of thousands in South Florida, Luis searched for days and eventually reached out to his connections in the industry. Now he works at Toast Distillers as a sales specialist.
“I’ve been working here for a month and a half. I was managing a restaurant but because of COVID-19 they had to close. Therefore, I had some connections in the industry and they offered me a job. So, I accepted and here I am,” said Luis.
The company not only provides hand sanitizers to the community but donates to frontline workers.
“This is just not about us selling hand sanitizer, we got involved where we’re servicing the Army, Navy, and the base of Florida that need the product. We have trucks going out everyday, we're servicing the community. We know that as well because we put those as priority,” said DJ.
