Story-Driven Marketing and Public Relations
We tell good stories about people doing good things.
View Our Work
We represent restaurants, food products and beverage brands that are intentional, sustainable, and locally-focused.
Food + Beverage
If your product or service creates a positive impact, we can tell your story to more people.
Hospitality + Lifestyle
Our agency handles book launches, appearances, and brand platform growth.
Chefs + Authors



Using a story-driven campaign approach, our agency exclusively works with brands that are eco-friendly and/or socially responsible:

  • Food & Beverage: local, organic, farm to table, sustainable
  • Hospitality: ecotourism, positive impact experiences
  • Lifestyle: natural, organic products and services
  • Chefs & Authors: innovative thought leaders

As award-winning writers, marketers and public relations experts, we help brands find the unique pivotal moment that makes a person say “yes” under their breath and become a loyal customer.

“If NASA and Wes Anderson got together and opened a marketing agency, it would be Bright Planning.”
