By Adrienne DeAngeloSenior Account Manager, Public Relations

Just before the world came to a screeching halt in mid-March, the boutique PR agency where I had been working for three years, Ellipses, merged with af&co. (formerly Andrew Freeman & Co.), an award-winning communications agency specializing in lifestyle, hospitality, food and beverage marketing and public relations.

The merger brings together two great entrepreneurial minds, Diana Haven, the founder of Ellipses, and Andrew Freeman, the founder of af&co., and a top-notch team of publicists, strategist and marketers. Af&co.’s pure hospitality and lifestyle focus makes it unique in the industry.

Much in the restaurant and hospitality world has changed in the past seven weeks, but we continue to partner with amazing clients and to bring ideas to the table that help them successfully navigate this unprecedented time.

Our past and current clients include 4505 BBQ, Duende, E & O Kitchen and Bar, Golden Gate Restaurant Association, Gott’s Roadside, Mr. Espresso, One Market, Palette, Perbacco + barbacco, Virgin Hotels San Francisco, Roman Spa, OCHO Candy and TCHO Chocolate.
