Who we are:
bread & Butter is a hands-on communications company with a fondness for all things food, drink and travel. Started by two people with one vision - to fill a gap in a market that is missing a fresh, honest and innovative approach to communications - b&B partners with people, brands and destinations that continually challenge us to think big, but act small.
How We Make the Dough:
We only partner with inventive businesses that inspire us and practice what we preach in our focus on hospitality. We are Southerners at heart, always saying, “Please” and “Thank You,” and hustlers by trade. We listen to our clients and work with them to create bespoke campaigns tailored to their vision. We have honest, long standing relationships with media based on mutual respect and a passion for the industry. For us, there is little difference between work and pleasure because our work is our pleasure.
