Growing a Great Agency

Proudly 100% female owned. Murphy Capps, CEO & Heather Johnson, Managing Partner

The mission of Kudzu Brands has always been to make expert brand and marketing help available to all businesses and organizations.

Started in 2010 by Murphy & Kenny Capps, in their living room, Kudzu Brands has grown into two floors of a historic building in downtown Black Mountain, has a staff of 12 brand and print artists and has supported the growth of over 400 businesses from Asheville, North Carolina to Chatham, Maine.

In 2017, Kudzu became a 100% female owned business when Murphy took over ownership with managing partner Heather Johnson.

We attribute our growth to our kudzu-like tenacity as well as our focus on mindful operations and on giving back to the communities we serve. This commitment is exemplified by our focus on environmentally friendly practices and our dedication to paying a certified living wage.

In 2016, Kudzu Brands was identified as a high potential business in Western North Carolina through the Advantage West ScaleUp WNC program and is projected to add multiple jobs to the economy. In 2017, we were selected for the for Goldman Sach’s 10,000 Small Businesses program at Babson College.

Your potential, our fingertips. Our mission is to be a long term partner in your growth and success. Your success matters-it supports your employees, your customers and our community. Let’s grow!
