Feeling stuck in your business? Need a fresh pair of eyes to give you real talk about where you're missing the mark or where the competition is crushing and you're treading water? I get it. I've been an entrepreneur, sole proprietor, chef/owner of two successful concepts in Atlanta for over 10 years, founder and creative director (and farmer) at The Habersham Hacienda my farm to fork special events facility in the North Georgia Mountains for 13 years. I have been a brand manager, copywriter and PR director for national brands and corporate ad agencies in the 90's and guess what.
Times change. Rebranding is hard inside your own bubble. Sometimes you can't afford a creative director or a whole team or agency and you're at your kitchen table talking to the dog about what next. Been there.
I hopefully fill that hole in your (business) soul. Disingenuous marketing slogans and optics only "good PR" moments don't work as well anymore. People see through that veil, it's getting thinner thinner thinner

The Napa of Tampa? (press for Beebe Restaurant Group)
...The Beebes have expanded to a second location in San Ann to open The Local Pub and Provisions. Located in an old grocery store from the 1920s on The Square, They still feature and support local farms and business is booming. From a local cheese (Winter Park Creamery) plate, to 14 local craft beers on draft, the staff tshirts boast, It’s a Local Thing. And it certainly is. The Local has an outdoor patio and live music from time to time. It’s become a real community hang out.
“What drives me”, says the tall affable Beebe, “is keeping it all full circle. We support local agriculture and cook for the seasons with our heritage and indigenous ingredients in mind. Florida has obvious perks in terms of weather and coastline of course, but many people miss the charm which still exists on the interior. There are still multi generation farms, winding, hilly country roads and orchards just 30 miles north of bustling Tampa. It’s a whole different world in just ½ an hour. We still pick our own blueberries down the road at Butch’s, we don’t have distributors, we have farmers. And we know everybody who grows our food. I like to think of it as the Napa of Tampa! ”
“I hear people lament from time to time that they miss the roots of Old Florida history, that they can’t find it anymore...but we’re still here! There’s a lot of history in East Pasco that hasn’t been wiped out with ‘progress’. You do have to make a hard right and poke around a bit, if you’re just blowing by on I-75, you’ll definitely miss us, but it’s worth slowing down for.”

Native Floridian Curtis Beebe and his wife Rebecca opened Pearl in the Grove 5 years ago featuring seasonal produce and meats from all local farms and purveyors. When Farm to Fork was still a new idea in the area, the Beebes took a chance on a concept close to their hearts and hung their shingle. Since then they’ve routinely top lists of critically acclaimed restaurants including Tampa’s Top Ten List. The surprise catch? The Pearl isn’t in Tampa. It’s in tiny Dade City in Pasco County.
