3rd Coast PR Adds Doc B’s Restaurant and Epic Gourmet Popcorn to Client Roster

by | Feb 13, 2020

3rd Coast PR, an award-winning agency based in Chicago, announced two additions to its client roster, Doc B’s Restaurant + Bar, headquartered in Chicago and Epic Gourmet Popcorn, out of Northwest Indiana. Both businesses are calling on the agency to help boost brand awareness and increase consumer trial.

“We are excited to start the year by adding two new clients that will utilize our food category experience,” says Rich Timmons, president and CSO of 3rd Coast PR. “Our team understands what it takes to motivate consumer trial and develops custom programs to reach our clients’ business goals. From compelling messaging that leads to top-tier media coverage to managing authentic influencer partnerships, our approach will allow us to effectively share the stories of these unique businesses to help them generate national and local awareness.”

Doc B’s Restaurant + Bar has been serving elevated American cuisine since first opening in Chicago in 2013. Now with eight restaurant locations across Chicago, Texas and Florida, Doc B’s Restaurant is looking to generate a mix of national and regional buzz. Through strategic media relations and an influencer program, 3rd Coast will help to raise Doc B’s Restaurant’s brand awareness and drive foot traffic.

“We chose 3rd Coast PR because they offer us a new perspective on how to approach PR and offer fresh strategic thinking for how we can boost our national awareness,” says Craig Bernstein, founder of Doc B’s Restaurant + Bar. “We look forward to working closely with the team as they share our company story and help to support the success of our business.”

Additionally, Epic Gourmet Popcorn is a premium popcorn brand and retailer that offers over 100 flavors and is the only popcorn company certified by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce. After recently opening its second retail location in Indiana and expanding their unique popcorn gift options, Epic is ready to spread the word about their product and drive in-store and online sales. 3rd Coast will focus on national and local media relations to ensure the ongoing success of the Epic Gourmet Popcorn.

“From the beginning, we knew working with 3rd Coast was the right choice because they understand food media and they weren’t afraid to take on a relatively unknown brand with ambitious goals,” says Bill Rossi of Epic Gourmet Popcorn. “We’re excited for them to help us build brand recognition across Chicago, Northwest Indiana and beyond.”
