About CharlotteBergerPR

CharlotteBergerPR was born out of a belief that when top-notch PR, Influencer Marketing and Social Media are firing on all cylinders, restaurants, nonprofits, and others in the hospitality industry can fulfill their maximum potentials. 


Work that checks boxes without real ROI, long required contracts, high monthly retainers, and employees stretched too thin are all too common in the PR agency world. Our team offers a new approach and business model at a price point you can afford, outpacing our competitors.
