Why Publications Professionals LLC (PubsPros?)

Pubs Pros is a woman-owned, veteran-owned, small business, which means it receives three checkmarks from the US government. From its infancy in a dedicated office in the founder’s basement, Pubs Pros has experienced gradual and controlled growth, which included moving into commercial property in 2010. 

In January 2000, Pubs Pros purchased a competitor: Communications Connection Inc. Several of CCI’s clients and contractors are still active. In 2017, we established a branch office in Silverdale, WA.
