Washington, D.C.

Who we are:

bread & Butter is a full-service communications agency with a fondness for all things food, drink and travel. We are a collaborative group of dreamers and do-ers. We combine intimate local knowledge with an extensive national network to craft clever and multidisciplinary communications campaigns tailored to our clients’ needs. We only partner with inventive businesses that inspire us and continually challenge us to think big, but act small.

Why bread & Butter:

We are Southerners at heart, always saying, “Please” and “Thank You,” and hustlers by trade. We believe everyone deserves a seat at the table and practice what we preach to ensure the spirit of hospitality runs through everything we do. We’re not a company that wastes time—not yours, not ours. We are not too busy to talk, come by or think of new ways to increase long-term brand awareness. For us, there is little difference between work and pleasure because our work is our pleasure.
