Public Relations Intern – bread & Butter
Who We Are:
bread & Butter is a hands-on communications company with a fondness for all things food, drink and travel.

How We Make the Dough:
We only work with inventive businesses that inspire us and practice what we preach in our focus on hospitality. We are Southerners at heart, always saying, “Please” and “Thank You,” and hustlers by trade. We listen to our clients and work with them to create bespoke campaigns tailored to their vision. We have honest, long standing relationships with media based on mutual respect and a passion for the industry. For us, there is little difference between work and pleasure because our work is our pleasure.
