Deborah Kwan has worked on a variety of projects that I have worked on. She has an innate understanding of the complexities of "maker" products and knows how and to whom this information can be shared. Plus, she is a blast to work with!
Amy Guittard, Marketing Director, Guittard Chocolate Company
Deborah goes above and beyond to create authentic stories that bring our brand to life. She is a well-respected and well-connected PR expert who has been a tremendous (and enthusiastic!) asset to our team.
Michael and Jacky Recchiuti, founders, Recchiuti Confections
Deborah’s passion for food is the foundation of her dedication. Her background in the culinary industry has given her the insider’s view and understanding of what makes a chef tick … highlighting those talents. She represented Recchiuti Confections when “artisan chocolatiers” in the United States were still following the lead of more established brands like La Maison du Chocolat and helped put this American brand on the map, placing us toe-to-toe with our European counterparts.
Minh Tsai, Founder & CEO, Hodo Foods
Getting the media interested in tofu is challenging. Using her extensive experience in the food space, Deborah not only guided us in developing a broad message about our brand, but also devised tailored messages for specific media outlets and journalists when we had news of innovations and events.
The consummate professional, Deborah is trusted by journalists to pitch meaningful stories of rising brands.
Deborah delivers when it counts.
Liv Wu, Liv Cook Eat
Deborah Kwan is one of the most professional, personable and effective publicists and communicators about all things food, whether it be food products, food literature and food personalities. As a journalist, corporate food program manager and private business owner of learning kitchens and events, I counted on her to provide me with substantive content, smooth logistics and clear writing. I can't recommend her more highly.
Darra Goldstein, Author and food scholar
Of all the publicists I’ve worked with over the years (and there have been many), Deborah stands out. I love how she thinks so creatively about each project and goes beyond standard approaches to p.r. Her contacts are impressive, her enthusiasm infectious, and her energy never flags. I can’t recommend her more highly!
