The Portland restaurant and food press release section is adjunct to PortlandFoodandDrink.com, and is an easy place for businesses to post about upcoming events. Feel free to send press releases about anything related to the Portland Metro food and restaurant scene. Other items will be deleted.
All items will be published as space allows, first come, first served. I post a maximum of twelve per day (so that everyone gets equal time on the front page), so if PR is backed up, postings may be held for a few days before they are published. There are times when I get too busy, and may not get them posted in time (or at all). I don’t generally post Friday or Saturday nights.
I do not post a press release for any organization/restaurant more than a few times per month, unless they are or have been an advertiser. Also, I do not post press releases that are sales fliers, such as wine sales, items with Amazon.com links, etc. The same goes for food carts – there are so many I would be flooded. However, check out foodcartsportland.com.
Send press releases to email@example.com. Submissions can be in .doc .html or text files, but be warned that Microsoft Word documents rarely copy over correctly (embedded photos never copy), and .pdf files have similar issues. I reserve the right to edit to reduce file size, change file formats, etc. HTML files won’t always display images, unless your server allows it. Please drop me a note with any further questions.
A few notes: Give me a title for your press release – not all capital letters, and not too long, or the system will truncate them. Feel free to attach a thumbnail image to go on the front page. The image should be 110 x 110 pixels, and in .png, .jpg or .gif format. (I can help you with these things if you need it.)
As of right now, I am not charging to post press releases.
