400 Brands And Counting!
We totally get the journey it takes to become a successful business. We vividly remember the day the seed for Kudzu Brands was planted. It was started in 2010 in a small living room office by husband and wife team Murphy and Kenny Capps. The newlywed couple shared a dream of bringing together creativity and business strategy to serve others. With a little luck and a lot of tenacity, Kudzu Brands has grown into two floors of a historic building in downtown Black Mountain.
The company now has a staff of 12 brand artists and has supported the growth of over 400 businesses from Asheville, North Carolina to Chatham, Maine.
Your potential, our fingertips. Our mission is to be a long term partner in your success. Your success has deep roots-it supports you, your employees, your customers and our communities. Let’s grow!
In 2017, Kudzu Brands became a 100% female owned business when Kenny “retired” to run across the state of North Carolina and Murphy took over running the business with managing partner Heather Johnson.
We attribute our success to a strong mission, a focus on mindful operations and on giving back to the communities we serve. This commitment is exemplified by our commitment to 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.
