Branding & Buzzing

We’re food people with a passion for marketing.

We understand the business and how it works. It’s why top names in the industry want to work with us.

They know we bring the goods.

Telling stories about food since 2011


We started Branding & Buzzing with a belief that social media would change eating, cooking and dining out. We were right. Today, when North America’s best food and bev brands want to own a moment, spread the word or launch a product, they knock on our door. These days, we greet them with a smile and a Jarritos.


Our strength has always been our reach. We worked in the food space for years, and our peers at the time are now the country’s top chefs, mixologists and restauranteur.


In 2020, our agency was listed in the top B2B Agencies in Advertising & Marketing by CLUTCH, and we were designated as HOSPITALITY HEROES by Kostuch Media for our efforts with Canada Takeout.


Our clients are some of the most well-known names in food and foodservice. You’ve heard of them because that’s our job. And we do it well. Let’s talk about what we can do for you.
