“When faced with the ‘Sideways’ Phenomenon, I sought out my friend Jannis Swerman to help guide the Hitching Post through those amazing opportunities. With well-established restaurant experience, and her great love of food, she has continued to offer a highly valued infectious excitement, as well as a calming wisdom, to all of our public relations and marketing efforts.”

“Working with Jannis was a natural from the start. She knows all sides of the business, and truly cares about your restaurant and your image.”


Suzanne Tracht


“Before I worked with Jannis, I never wanted to work with a publicist.

But after our working together on our L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade Fundraiser I realized that not all publicists are the same. Jannis is there for me whenever needed; she's intuitive about my needs and those of our restaurants. Our communication is like shorthand for the 21st Century”

“Jannis has been an invaluable resource for our restaurants since the day we opened. She has placed stories for us with key media partners in local, regional and national publications and electronic networks. She is creative and consistently comes up with new ideas for exposure and reach. Her background in the hospitality industry sets her apart from others in that she understands the intricacies of our complicated business. Beyond that, Jannis is an absolute pleasure to work with!”

“Jannis Swerman and Company (and her team of Scott Wetherby

and the social media wiz, Suzanne Lanza), are the "crème de la crème.”

The experience, opportunities and insights they bring to us have worked in our favor in so many ways and across so many media platforms. Our brand awareness is much greater because of their efforts.”
