Estes Public Relations, a national public relations firm with offices in Louisville, Chicago, and Beaufort, S.C., serves a diverse client base that includes associations, health and lifestyle businesses, retail companies, hotels, restaurants and “green” business leaders.

The company’s many notable achievements include representing six Food & Wine Best New Chefs.

Working with our national media contact network, we close the distance between our clients and the publications that fit them best. We’ve placed a Kentucky soy sauce microbrewery in The New York Times, a Richmond, Virginia restaurant in Esquire magazine and a Hawaiian fish company in Saveur.
