As we’re all becoming increasingly aware, you have to be open to change. Whether it comes about intentionally, as happenstance, or in response to a crisis, sometimes you just have to roll with it. In doing so, you may just be surprised by the opportunities that grow. The story of how RPR Firm came into the Nashville PR scene is a prime example.

The ‘It’ City for Business Too

Nashville’s moniker as the “It” city has been firmly entrenched for its music, food, and Southern hospitality. But, it’s also become one of the top places in the country to start a business in 2020 according to Inc.com. The reasons for the number 11 out of 50 ranking include the city’s net business creation, population growth, and job creation. R founder, Emily Reynolds Bergh, luckily recognized this entrepreneurial spirit much sooner.

The Call That Changed It All

Never one to limit herself to one city for long, Bergh had spent years working in public relations in San Diego, CA, as well as San Antonio and Austin, TX. After having launched RPR Firm in Austin, as she tells it, “I received a referral from a long-time client. His friend was opening up a new concept in Nashville. I had never even been to Nashville and yet was called to see if I would be up for doing some work for an opening. I visited and fell in love with the city (as many do). The music, the food, the life felt like the change that I needed both personally and professionally.”

Why Nashville PR for RPR Firm

What she also realized was that the most thriving industries in Nashville happened to be those in which RPR Firm specializes including restaurant, retail, hospitality, health and wellness, and of course, startups. It was the perfect fit. But, says Bergh, “I didn’t want to leave my Texas life fully behind so RPR Firm now has branches in Texas and Nashville and we work with clients nationally. It was the best decision I ever made.”

We now not only have Austin and Nashville PR clients, but we also help brands across the country from Portland to New York City bring their vision to life. And expanding to Nashville helped us find just the right blend of talent across our brand, digital, and content teams for R clients.
