The Ekus Group | Small Business Spotlight

The Ekus Group is a boutique culinary agency in Hatfield that recently celebrated its 40th year in business. What began as a culinary public relations company has grown into a successful agency whose services encompass literary and talent representation, media training, consultations, and workshops.

If you’re a talented chef, food blogger, or culinary influencer, you’re the type of person they love working with. This four-woman team brokers cookbook deals and brand partnerships, gets folks camera-ready through media training, and utilizes their industry expertise to guide prospective authors on their publishing path. Over the pandemic they developed an online self-paced course, How to Write a Cookbook: a course on pitches, proposals, and publishing by The Ekus Group©, to meet the growing demand of people seeking their expertise and created a unique way to have access to it.

Valley Community Development has kept The Ekus Group updated on continuing education trainings, grants, and other community resources for small, women-owned businesses. “Being rooted in Western Massachusetts and serving clients locally, nationally and globally, is only possible with continued support from places like Valley Community Development”, said Sally Ekus.
