We started with a single hat and a single typewriter. Today, we’re a national force in every medium, digital and traditional.
In 1982, Bryan Eppstein moved from an advertising/PR agency in Houston, took out a lease in downtown Fort Worth, purchased an IBM Selectric Typewriter and opened shop as an advertising, public relations and political consulting firm. A year later, he incorporated the company. Today, that trusty Selectric is still in use…right next to our myriad of high-tech Apple computers.
Our headquarters is in Fort Worth, and we have operated Austin and Dallas branch offices since 1987. Additionally, we have several long-standing relationships with clients in the Houston area, including occasional assistance with research projects at Rice University. Although we love Texas, we will work outside the state too. In fact, we have worked nationally for clients in more than a dozen states.
Cutting our teeth on retail advertising, business/non-profit public relations, real estate promotion, and political elections, The Eppstein Group has expanded its full-service capabilities to include bilingual opinion polling and public affairs. We also have strong partnerships with M/WBE firms (Minority and/or Women Owned Business Enterprises) offering talented and diverse communication teams for our governmental and corporate clients.
In 2009, we briefly reorganized into a corporate umbrella over four separate specialized companies, but like The Coca-Cola Company, we returned to our marketing roots, reuniting as The Eppstein Group in 2012.
We earned our first GOLD ADDY award in 1985, and our first TELLY Award (for TV/radio excellence) in 1987. Building on this award-winning momentum, our client work has consistently received recognition spanning three decades for advertising excellence in all categories in local and national arenas.
The Eppstein Group is also proudly dedicated to community service, and actively contributes pro bono services, money, and equipment to non-profit organizations. Our most heartfelt project to date involved 16 years of volunteer teamwork in helping secure a site, funding, design and construction for the five-acre “Fort Worth Police and Fire Fighters Memorial” which now honors those individuals who have given the ultimate sacrifice for public safety.
