Three foodies walk into a marketing agency…

The Story behind

Fresh out of the oven as a Boston marketing agency, Center Cut Marketing has established over a decade of roots in the restaurant marketing industry.

A passion for playing with food instilled the birth of Center Cut Marketing. It’s in our blood. It came from every creation, every server, and every satisfied guest. Spending many years marketing for a multi-unit chain, we exercised our chops and became hungry for more experiences. At our agency we are committed to serving up bold visuals, solid emotional branding, social media finesse and candid reputation management strategies to transform companies into industry leaders. With every restaurant comes a story, and we would like to help share it and continue to work on the perfect marketing recipe!



We are a Boston marketing agency built off of the principle that innovative ideas sell, candid conversations matter, and engaging content resonates. Although rooted in the hospitality industry, you could say we’re the five course meal of agencies – as we also cater a la carte to clients in the B2B, real estate, and fitness management markets.


  • Rafael

    Idea guy. Food lover. Marketing Hotshot. Hailing from a large Brazilian family with countless years of hospitality and restaurant experience, Rafael was practically born spatula-in-hand! Immersing himself in the industry from a young age, he continued to climb the ladder combining his love (obsession) for food with his marketing talents. This naturally led to years of both operating and marketing for a multi-unit chain. Playing with food thus instilled the birth of Center Cut Marketing.

    A little bit about him: If he’s not in the kitchen, or cooking up the latest marketing strategy, find Rafael pursuing his passion of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – improving on his brown belt status!

  • Kim

    After a lifetime of getting dirty in the Restaurant Business, Kim joined Center Cut Marketing to continue cleaning up messes, but this time online.

    With 20 years of hands-on operational experience and an eye for the perfect Instagram shot, we are excited for Kim to join us in her new venture!

    A little bit about her: When not spinning the negative into positive, find Kim spending time with her family and friends or walking the beach with her Catahoula puppy, Sadie! 

  • Kevin

    Brand Magician. Web Developer. Sushi fanatic. Kevin has been helping businesses soar for decades; thus the creation of his company, Flock Marketing. Offering branding, website and social media services, Kevin has passion and talent to give every brand he meets a unique and strong voice.

    A little bit about him: When he isn’t taking flight at Flock, find Kevin yelling “checkmate” during a killer game of chess, or spending time outdoors with his close-knit family.

  • MIKE

    Creator. Designer. IPA-lover. In addition to his knowledge in craft brews, Mike excels with over twenty years of experience in the graphic design realm. With a passion for restaurant design, Mike caters his craft in menu, in-store promotions, and social media graphic creation.

    A little bit about him: When he’s not whizzing on the Adobe Suite, find Mike enjoying the outdoors with his wife and two children. Other days, Mike will more than likely be adding to his ticket stub collection as a cinema aficionado!
