What is Community Based Marketing and how can it help you? Join MJ Finstrom, Chief Creative Officer of HUTdog at the Arcadia Community Coordinating Council on Monday, March 6, 2023 as she gives us the lowdown on marketing.
As a co-owner of HUTdogs, MJ Finstrom specializes in helping individuals and organizations promote their business, events, ideas, or cause. With real-world, battle-tested marketing experience and a reputation for delivering creative ideas, HUTdogs is a go-to partner for those seeking help with their marketing efforts.

She is also an active member of her community, serving on the board for the Arcadia Performing Arts foundation and the executive board for Arcadia High School PTSA. During the pandemic, MJ and HUTdogs helped businesses stay connected and informed with a complimentary, award-winning webinar series called “The New Normal”. She received some very cool awards for this work (Woman of the Year 2021) from Senator Rubio and Senator Portantino. In 2022, MJ was named Arcadia Citizen of the year. MJ is also the director of marketing for Downtown Arcadia, where she brings her passion for community-based marketing, community unity, and local support to the forefront.
