The Food +
Shelter Agency

R+M helps food and building companies design and implement marketing solutions for the modern world.

We understand complex sales cycles, supply chain challenges, and the many idiosyncrasies that make these essential industries so unique.

We Work

R+M works alongside marketing leaders to tame the chaos and do the best work of their career. We do this using an approach we call modern marketing.

Modern marketing is not about simply implementing technology or data or other “new” tools. It’s about seeing the world and our brand’s place in it clearly, then designing a marketing machine that gives us the best shot at success.

Modern marketing starts with identifying what we’re trying to accomplish and then clearly defining the measurements that signal we are getting there. It means replacing scattershot projects with orderly programs. And automating where it makes sense, not just because we can.
