#What We Do

Our CEO Angela Zanders began Captivate Cravings with over 10 years of marketing, PR, and event planning experience.  In 2012 Angela’s love of food, wine, and travel took her to Le Cordon Bleu where she earned her culinary degree.  Upon attending culinary school Angela knew that while she had a passion for the industry and a love of food that her goals were a little different than the aspiring chefs in her classes.  Captivative Cravings grew from her combined love of the restaurant industry and her marketing experience. 

When Angela was not performing her duties as VP of Marketing for a medical sales company she was traveling and visiting many various restaurants around the world.  During her travels she often found it difficult to take off her marketing hat and only wear her tourist hat.  Angela was constantly evaluating the digital presence and reviews of the restaurants she visited.  Through this she quickly learned that there was a major market for someone with her experience and expertise to aid restaurants in growing their clientele through digital marketing and monitoring. 

Captivative Cravings allows restaurants to focus on what they do best, creating amazing food, and we focus on the rest.  Overall, with both marketing expertise and culinary experience we are the best of both worlds! 

Cohesive Marketing

We strive to create a cohesive marketing strategy that is consistent through all platforms and in all messaging.  No matter what platform a potential customer is using you should be easily identifiable.


We all want million followers and instant social media success but that does not happen over night.  But through consistency and patience we can help you get there.

Quality over Quantity

Consistent posts and staying engaged is key to social media success but at Captivative Cravings we strive to ensure quality content that your audience will find important as well as creating consistent content.


Social media allows you to create relationships with your followers.  We believe in nurturing those relationships and not just getting followers.


We do a lot of talking, but you have to also hear what your customers have to say.  We keep our ears to your audience and keep track of what’s important.


It is important to not only hear but to acknowledge certain customer concerns.  We work with you to create an approach for acknowledgment.
