    James Beard Bound

    James Beard Bound

    In early 2016, the team at The Fig Tree Restaurant decided to take its talents on the road and provide an evening of fine dining and fine wine at the James Beard House in New York. The James Beard Foundation had been asking The Fig Tree Restaurant to do this for a little over a year, and with the help of M-Squared Public Relations, the restaurant decided it was time.

    Cooking at the James Beard House is no small task. Every night, chefs from around the country set up in the kitchen to prepare their meal, which is essentially a shrine to the late James Beard, a famous chef and culinary personality who now has the most esteemed awards in the culinary industry named after him. That means chefs can’t begin working on their dinner until 8:00am on the day of the dinner. The restaurants have to coordinate transportation or shipment of food, find somewhere to keep it until they can get into the Beard House, and then they have one very long day of prep and cooking (as if a chef’s day isn’t long enough, already!).

    M-Squared Public Relations assisted The Fig Tree Restaurant every step of the way - from locking in the date to coming up with a theme for the dinner to organizing a meeting with New York media while the team was in New York. Thanks to the months and months of planning by M-Squared, The Fig Tree Restaurant’s dinner at the James Beard House went off without a hitch, ending with numerous compliments about Chef Greg’s food and wine pairings and an invitation to return to the James Beard House at any time.

    #Hooked On Cowfish

    #Hooked On Cowfish

    In the summer of 2016, The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar unleashed it’s signature burgushi combo to the Atlanta food scene. M-Squared PR jumped into action planning a full fledged blogger dinner, using their media relations expertise to reach out to all of Atlanta’s top foodies for a stellar event.

    Coupled with graphics, hashtags, an A-list invite sheet and a social media campaign that included Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and The Cowfish’s brand new Snapchat, the dinner hosted more than 30 influential bloggers who enjoyed a five course meal that consisted of appetizers, burgers, sushi, burgushi and desserts. It’s safe to say no one left hungry!

    After the dinner, The Cowfish was swamped with blog posts, social media hits and new customers who are loving the unusually delicious burgushi concept. They are definitely #HookedOnCowfish.

    Partnerships and Progress

    Partnerships and Progress

    In January 2016, Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse hosted Davio's Cooks for Charity with special guest Jonnetta Patton, owner of JPat Management and J's Kitchen Culinary Incubator.

    M-Squared paired Patton with Davio's Chef/Owner Steve DiFillippo, and the two rolled up their sleeves to prepare and serve her favorite Davio's dish, Lobster Risotto. Sales from the dish benefited Usher's New Look Foundation.

    Social, e-mail and media campaigns yielded a nearly sold-out dining room and more than $1,500 for Usher's Foundation. Carefully selected key editors attended on behalf of regional publications spanning the culinary, entertainment, business and lifestyle sectors.

    The result? Huge social media buzz and an immediate 16 million media impressions and $100,000 in ad value for each client. Both partners were overwhelmed by the event’s success, and an unexpected appearance by both Patton’s sons J. Lack and Usher, that they renewed their agreements with the firm. Media relations were strengthened for Davio’s and established for Patton as she pursued her next business venture, J’s Kitchen Culinary Incubator. While M-Squared garnered national awards for the work, we are most proud of and inspired by the ongoing business partnership and friendship that blossomed between DiFillippo and Patton.

    New Rooms, New Attitude!

    New Rooms, New Attitude!

    We’ve found “should” to be limiting. It’s tired, boring even, to behave only as others would expect. That’s why we’ve broken the rules of should, embracing a more diverse definition of what it is to be a luxury hotel--with new rooms to boast.

    Enter M-Squared Public Relations, who sought out PR opportunities to feature everything from the mood boards to the design team and the finished product, including a placement in Architectural Digest that highlighted the clean and cutting-edge design of the new Midtown Rooms.


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. Clients are never bounced around from rep to rep or prioritized, as is often the case with larger firms. 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.
