Jan Barnett

Another Broken Egg Café

Chief Marketing Officer

Stewart Communications immensely helped our efforts to increase awareness for Another Broken Egg Café as we successfully opened restaurants in a variety of markets. Even before our grand openings, Stewart helped position us as a great, new chef-inspired concept resulting in strong traffic from day one. They are masters at generating traditional PR while leveraging both digital and social media to generate maximum awareness and excitement.

Ewell Smith

Mission Chefs


Our inaugural efforts to feed the homeless and veterans with America’s best chefs in New Orleans competed with the massive Jazz & Heritage Festival, a PGA Golf Tournament, Navy Week and hard news events. Stewart Communications convinced every TV station and local newspaper to cover our event. The success was a testament to the relationships Stewart creates with the media, and their ability to make even the smallest event newsworthy.

Thomas Neyhart

PosiGen Solar

Chief Executive Officer

We first worked with Stewart because of a crisis that gained media attention. Immediately, they diagnosed the problem, devised a strategy, and coached the executive team about what to expect and how to respond. Their instincts and experience kept us one step ahead. Within a day, the issue was resolved, and our response even earned us some goodwill and additional business. After that, Stewart’s public relations advice and hard work earned us incredibly positive media coverage.

Stewart Communications was an absolutely integral part of our nonprofit's success and growth, upon relocating to Franklin. Not only did Morgan foster support from many business leaders, he also created important relationships with local politicians.
