INDIANAPOLIS, May 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Static Media is pleased to announce the acquisition of Food Republic, the premier online destination for food and cooking. Food Republic now joins Static Media's family of three food brands – Tasting Table, Daily Meal and Mashed – which reached a combined 17.6 million US unique viewers in March, making it the 7th largest "Lifestyles – Food" audience, according to Comscore*. Static Media also operates a total of twenty properties, including lifestyle, beauty, and entertainment brands such as Women.com, Glam, TheList, HouseDigest, /Film, and Looper.
Originally launched in 2010, Food Republic is a one-stop shop for anyone who loves food and cooking. The brand offers approachable recipes, useful cooking tips, dining advice, drink recommendations, and the latest news from the food industry. It caters to all levels of expertise, ensuring that seasoned home cooks find as much helpful content as those donning an apron for the first time.
Food Republic was founded by chef Marcus Samuelsson and the Samuelsson Group. In 2013, Zero Point Zero Production acquired Food Republic from the Marcus Samuelsson Group.
"We are thrilled to have Food Republic join the Static Media family and welcome the opportunity to elevate this exceptional food brand to new heights.
