Cody Hicks / Atlanta Eats
Chief Brisket Officer
With over ten years of experience working with some of the world’s largest and most recognizable brands, Cody Hicks was at the helm of the brand integration and content marketing movements long before they became industry buzzwords. His distinguished career began at 790 the Zone, Atlanta’s leading sports talk radio station, where he developed custom multimedia marketing promotions that effectively connected major national brands – such as Coca-Cola, Home Depot, KIA and AT&T – with fans of Atlanta’s professional and collegiate sports properties. After his tenure at 790 the Zone, Cody went on to pursue another of his passions: food. He co-founded Bread n Butter Productions, a video production company with a focus on food and dining, where he oversees all sales and marketing efforts. With a client roster including Las Vegas Sands, the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Jamestown Properties, Bread n Butter Productions has quickly established itself as one of the country’s premiere video production and content marketing companies. Cody also oversees all facets of business for Atlanta Eats, a multimedia company showcasing Atlanta’s dining scene via a weekly television show, radio program, live events, and digital and social media platforms.
