    Stop, Collaborate and Listen

    Moffett Restaurant Group kicked off their 2018 Kitchen CoLab event series with a bang, bringing executive chef of Bar Margot and Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, Michael Patria, to Charlotte to team up with executive chef of Stagioni, Andrew Dodd. CoLab is a series M2PR has headed up with Charlotte client, Moffett Restaurant Group, bringing out of town chefs to the Queen City to pair up like-minded chefs to express their culinary creativity. 

    In late January, Chef Patria headed up I-85 for some good food and great laughs, and the two chefs created a menu that brought in droves of diners from all over Charlotte. One of Patria’s most popular dishes from the evening was a squid ink spaghetti with lobster, chili mint sofrito and botarga —a dish that Dodd served as a special even after Patria headed back to Atlanta.

    The event garnered significant local media coverage, with one of Charlotte’s top food editors joining the fun at Stagioni for the momentous occasion, along with customers sharing photos of their favorite dishes on Instagram and Facebook.

    Stay tuned for more creative CoLabs in Charlotte, and catch one in Atlanta when Chef Andrew Dodd heads to Atlanta this fall to join the Bar Margot team for a night for the ages.

  • When the Stars Align

    When the Stars Align

    If there’s one thing M2PR loves, it’s a happy hour at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Phipps Plaza. By leveraging relationships with prominent voices in the Atlanta market, M2PR continues to strive to bring notable happy hour hosts to Davio’s for a monthly special event that fills the restaurant with Atlanta’s hottest movers and shakers. 

    To kick off the new year, Davio’s Atlanta teamed up with the infamous fashion and lifestyle influencer and entrepreneur, SUTHINGIRL Ashley Stamoulis, to raise donations for local non-profit, Education Cures. 

    The M2PR rockstars pulled out all the stops to create the perfect evening under the stars with the Fashion & Fortune Celebrity Happy Hour inspired by the new year and zodiac signs.

    The Davio’s patio was transformed into a special event space with fire pits, dreamy decor and a private bar that served the custom cocktail called the “Zodiac.” The event brought out a stellar crowd filled with notable Atlantans, influencers and media.

    Between the efforts of M2PR, Davio's and Ashley Stamoulis, 20+ auction items were donated raising more than $1,500 for Education Cures, which helps provide educational resources to teachers and children in Sierra Leone.

    Talk about a match made in Heaven! 

  • 50 Million Dollar Facility Grand Opening

    50 Million Dollar Facility Grand Opening

    "At the start of 2017, M-Squared Public Relations was tasked with creating a public relations and marketing plan to introduce Life Time Athletic to the Charlotte market. Beginning with brand recognition in a market that only knew the Life Time Fitness facilities, establishing a different experience and communicating that uniqueness was surely a challenge. In response, M-Squared Public Relations successfully arranged a number of partnerships in Charlotte to spread the word about the brand and upcoming opening through marketing, events and of course, media relations. 

    Through association with local businesses such as Whole Foods, Charlotte Running Co., Work For Your Beer, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Yoga on Tap, Aloft Ballantyne Hotel and more, M-Squared PR positioned Life Time Athletic Charlotte as an expert in the health and wellness industry by providing free workout classes on a weekly basis to the general public. These partnerships were not only a great way to get Life Time Athletic Charlotte plugged in locally, engage potential members and build awareness, but M-Squared PR was also able to capitalize on media outreach through promoting the plentiful happenings, yielding over 125 press hits prior to the opening. 

    As the opening continued to be pushed back, it became increasingly difficult to maintain buzz and relevance, but through continued strategic marketing and events, Life Time opened it’s largest facility in the company’s history in South Charlotte with close to 10,000 membership leads, well over the club’s goal.” 

     

  • Bringing Them All To The Mall

    Bringing Them All To The Mall

    In 2016, Northlake Mall sought help to root itself deeper in the Charlotte community. With that mission, M-Squared PR set out to produce family-friendly events at the mall, partner Northlake Mall with local charities and secure positive, community-based media placements.

    In doing so, we presented Northlake Mall’s first-ever holiday kickoff and tree lighting ceremony, complete with a local celebrity emcee, performances from local dance and singing groups and Santa Claus’ arrival. This event was attended by more than 100 people, and garnered coverage on local TV and in local print publications.

    At the beginning of 2017, M-Squared PR organized a “Free Fitness Saturday” taking place the first Saturday of every month, with instructors provided by a nearby YMCA. This has been met with strong positive reaction from the community, as well as the media. WCNC-TV’s Hannah Welker previewed one of the first events with several live interviews and a live exercise demonstration. Local print publications have also featured the event, helping with the growing number of participants each month.

    Finally, M-Squared PR spearheaded a Summer Camp Expo in partnership with Macaroni Kid in Spring 2017. This allowed parents to peruse local summer camps and register their children before spots were filled. In the works for Fall 2017: a Tiny House Tour in the mall’s parking lot! Stay tuned!

Founded by owner and president Marsha Middleton in 2008, M-Squared is an independent, boutique public relations firm with more than 19-years of experience across a variety of industries and specializing in the luxury, retail, hotel, tourism, medical, food and beverage and real estate markets.

Our work is innovative, creative and results oriented. Our messages are on-target and reach the audiences that matter, thanks to the long-term relationships we’ve established with members of local and national media. We work hard, we work smart and we have fun doing it.

We maintain a select client base to ensure the highest level of personalized service and attention. When clients call, we answer. When clients e-mail, we respond immediately.

We’ll feel like a part of your company, yet as an outside agency we maintain objectivity and perspective.

We’re passionate about our clients and our community. Every year, we donate our time and services to organizations including the National Black Arts Festival; March of Dimes; the Grady Health System Cancer Center for Excellence, Meals on Wheels and many others.

Awards include the 2011 Social Media Award by the Senior Citizen Services of Metropolitan Atlanta and the Home Office Business Achievement award from the Atlanta Business League. And they’re not the only ones who love us.
