We created Six One Fork for Columbus first, with the hope that passionate food writers and editors in other cities would be able to scale this model to their specific audiences and food and beverage scenes. We believe every great food city deserves an independent food magazine that readers can turn to like a smart, trusted friend. From our perspective, the more great food content out there, the better for everyone.

To that end, we offer a wide range of consulting services to fit your needs and resources. We’re excited to work with you and share the expertise we’ve honed over years of creating content for sophisticated, food-literate audiences in thriving metropolitan areas, including Columbus, Cleveland and Chicago. This menu is an idea-starter for the services we can tailor to your needs: We can provide any individual service, any combination of them, or create something completely unique to your situation and resources. Let’s start here and see what we can do together!

Sounds great. What’s next?

We’d love to chat. About your ideas and goals—and the things that might be holding you back. Let’s start with a complimentary half-hour phone conversation in which we do a lot of listening and asking questions and you give us a sense of how we can help. We’ll follow up with a detailed proposal that meets your needs and is a good fit for your resources.
