"Community centered, smart, playful & professional. OctoCog understands the hospitality industry, and loves it as well - it shows in everything they do."

-Diane Wolf - Ugly Mug, Lobster Shanty

They Trust Us.

"As the owner of an organization that promotes the entire community, it is so nice knowing that we have an industry expert to reach out to for the latest happenings (some of which he is also responsible for!) in the ever-expanding culinary scene in the North Shore... Someone that we can send our clients and partners to and automatically know they are in good hands. Standing out amongst even the best that even Boston has to offer.. Dan is a pleasure to work with, super professional and very attentive to his client's needs (AND not afraid to be creative.. our favorite type of business!)"

John Andrews - Creative Salem, Creative North Shore

Let us Help you.

"In a chaotic fast paced industry of running a restaurant, it’s refreshing to partner with OctoCog in supporting our mass marketing platforms. The entire OctoCog team is engaged, patient and creates customized solutions for our needs. In short time, they understood our branding personality and their voice represents us extremely well. "
