We are seasoned public relations and marketing professionals, specializing in the Food and Beverage and Hospitality industries, whose shared strengths are raised to the second power on our clients’ behalf.
“Verdi and Hopson seem to have an almost uncanny grasp of what people want at the moment, and the rhythm of their meals — a sequence of vegetable-based small plates followed perhaps by a shared larger course and then a dessert — cleaves pretty closely to the way a lot of us actually eat. And unlike most of the chefs who put stewed chickpeas or flatiron steaks on their menus because they’ve heard that’s what they’re supposed to do, Hopson can actually cook.”
You can laugh at the Bellwether’s on-trend menu, but Ted Hopson’s cooking is no joke (Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times) Review (excerpt)
JS2, while being incredibly effective in the traditional PR function, has become an indispensable part of our brand development. The team truly understands who we are and what we are seeking to accomplish. They are always accessible, they are on top of everything they do on our behalf, and they are an absolute pleasure to work with. Their advice and guidance has been a vital contributor to our growth and success.
I approached JS2 to handle dineLA's PR needs and they really helped to increase the awareness for our Restaurant Week and Happy Hour Week events. The entire team goes above and beyond to ensure the job gets done and done well. Their positive attitude also makes it very easy to work with them. I would recommend JS2 to anyone in the restaurant or hospitality industries looking for a PR firm who will give you their full attention.
I love working with JS2. They have managed campaigns for two of Los Angeles Times’ signature events, Festival of Books and The Taste, and they bring passion, creativity and accountability to each project. They are both a pleasure to work with and incredibly effective in reaching earned media goals.
I can honestly say that my restaurant would not be what it is today without the support and teamwork from JS2. They worked at getting us placements in our first two months that most restaurants never get after years!! Working with them has been one of the best partnerships I could ask for.
Since hiring JS2 in 2013, I have been impressed with the team’s passion for the Dog Haus brand as well as their creative, forward-thinking and strategic consumer and business PR approach. Over the years, JS2 has become an integral part of the team we can depend on which is important as the brand expands. We can count on them to deliver every time.
