About Us

Our Philosophy

Bento Box Communications lives by the philosophy that every business has a story to tell. We want to help tell those stories, whether it is through social media, video, website content, blogging, articles, newsletters, emails, or any other online channel.

Why do we do what we do?

Your story as a business, and a business owner, is important to share because it is through those stories you create better customer engagement and more authentic client relationships. 

But your story isn’t just about you… it’s about your customers and what they want to read. You have a powerful opportunity to provide meaningful and relevant content to your customers while also creating opportunities for business growth.

Bento Box Communications offers businesses strategic support and crafting social media, video, and web content that focuses on education and engagement for your target audience. We provide customized content solutions that fit your business communication goals and budget.

Why “Bento Box”?

A bento box is a traditional Japanese meal usually served as a packaged meal, including rice or noodles, fish or meat, with pickled and cooked vegetables. The word bento originates from the Japanese Southern Song slang term pinyin, meaning “convenient” or “convenience.” Bento box styles range from simple to elaborate. The range is dynamic, which is how Bento Box Communications operates. We provide services that range from simple, single-service communication needs to more encompassing and strategic solutions.

Justin Knepper, MBA/MA

Owner & Chief Creative

I love telling stories. Whether it is a blog, website, video, training course, or presentation, I have always enjoyed the art of sharing experiences in an engaging and dynamic way. Though my resume shows a long history (over 20 years) of work in the financial services industry, I have spent most of my career writing and helping individuals and teams improve their communications and build their skills to better serve our small business customers. The variety of businesses and entrepreneurial stories out there is amazing and inspiring.

From my experience with small businesses, I started Bento Box Communications with the focus of helping businesses tell their story using my unique skills of storytelling and information design expertise.
