Proffitt PR celebrated five years in business and the grand opening of its new office space with a ribbon cutting May 25, held in conjunction with the Destin, Greater Fort Walton Beach, and Walton Area chambers of commerce.

For the past five years, Proffitt PR has grown from being nurtured atop tables at local coffee shops and bookstores to now having a stylish brick-and-mortar location in Miramar Beach and over 25 clients of record representing the entire Emerald Coast.

Jessica Proffitt Bracken, president of the locally owned firm, and her team of three formally hosted a ribbon cutting and grand opening, bringing together over 300 friends and clients to celebrate five years of old-fashioned hard work.

“In 2011, when I decided to venture out on my own to help businesses in our community better connect with their customers, I hoped that we would be here one day,” Proffitt said. “I started by attending every networking event on the Emerald Coast that I could, and now we’ve helped over 100 local, national and international brands create the brand recognition and social media presence they needed.”

Representatives of the Walton Area Chamber of Commerce, the Destin Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce were on hand for the celebration, which featured cocktails, beer and nibbles from Proffitt PR clients and friends including Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer, Jim ‘N Nick’s, Marlin Grill, Sunset Bay Café, Signature Catering of 30A, Grayton Beer Company and Chaste 850.

“I would not be here without my team and without the support that we continue to get from the community for every initiative that we take on,” Proffitt said. “We have a passion for what we do, we work hard, and we truly deliver a custom approach to public relations, advertising, social media management and events you can’t get elsewhere.”
