Who We Are

Our rich history as a Detroit-based PR firm in Michigan has given us the opportunity to shape some of the region’s most iconic brands and develop strategic B2B and B2C programs for clients in a variety of industries with a local, national and global reach.

What We Do

We bring together our diverse specialties and skill sets to build integrated communications programs that deliver maximum impact. Our integrated programs include a wide range of owned media (website, email marketing, video), shared media (social media), earned media (media relations) and paid (digital/social/traditional advertising).

Whether you use one or every service we offer at Franco, strategic planning and program management are core parts of our integrated communications programs. Learn more about our specific capabilities:
