Bon Vivant PR LLC

What we Do 

  Bon Vivant PR was conceived to support small businesses in the food and beverage industry with public relations, marketing and social media services. 
Why restaurants and bars? 
Simple. We love food and happy hour and just being in that scene. And we’re all about supporting local businesses in and around Athens, Georgia as much as we can. Now, the reality is that most mom and pop eateries can’t afford big agency retainers yet they need these services just as much as the next guy. 

That’s where we come in. We work remotely from home and have a very small staff so we don’t have to beef up the bill. And although our rates are astoundingly reasonable, we certainly don’t slack off and instead execute effective campaigns to increase long-term brand awareness for your business by fostering meaningful relationships with fellow bon vivants. 

 So whether it’s a new restaurant or one in need of a revamp, we can create awareness of your brand and help strengthen it with our strategic approach.

About Us

Bon Vivant PR's founder Melissa Toledo began her career at small to medium-sized PR agencies representing clients such as BASF (Builders Association of South Florida), the South Florida International Auto Show, and Miami Spice -
securing local, regional and national media exposure for high-profile entrepreneurs and up-and-coming chefs. 

After her long hiatus from the field to pursue a profession in education, she returned to the PR world freelancing for Sweetie Pie by Savie, a bakery based in Athens, Georgia. 
That experience confirmed how much she truly enjoyed being a publicist, particularly for small businesses in the food industry. Once a foodie, always a foodie.
Months after moving to the Midwest and with her husband's encouragement, Bon Vivant PR was born. After a year in Iowa, Melissa and her family moved back to the Classic City where she continues to represent Marlene's at Sevastopol Station, a fine dining restaurant based in Des Moines, Iowa, as well as Craft Public House and Tranquility Massage and Wellness.
