Griffin Productions, is a multifaceted marketing company specializing in tourism. We began our business in 1988 by providing printed guest directories to local hotels. We still print our Beach Directory in five cities.
In 2002 we debuted our Best Restaurants Magazines. They are distributed along the Pinellas County Beaches and downtown St. Petersburg. This is one of the largest circulated glossy magazines in Tampa Bay…featuring Food & Entertainment. Each magazine includes maps, coupons and other interesting listings of best restaurants. They can be found in most tourist accommodations, many restaurants, and most visitor centers
November 1st 2005, Griffin Directories published a cookbook, Recipes of the Best Beach Restaurants. This fantastic cookbook contains recipes from 40 of the Best Restaurants on the Pinellas County Beaches in the Tampa Bay Area. Each recipe was submitted by the individual restaurant chefs and contains a photograph of each dish. You can find information regarding buying or distributing this book, online at Recipes of the Best Beach Restaurants.
In May of 2005, the concept for our Neighborhood Newsletter, now the Neighborhood News Magazine was born. This was our first direct mailed product. Our first issue was Indian Rocks Beach. We choose to print an issue every other month that would include all the information residents of the city wanted, with a little history too. The concept was so popular we soon added a Belleair issue, followed by a Clearwater Beach one too. Madeira Beach approached us about doing their city Newsletter which we did for a few years, but discontinued when we expanded to Downtown St. Petersburg. During Covid-19 we were forced to discontinue Downtown St. Petersburg also. Now we produce The Neighborhood News in three areas, six times a year – Clearwater Beach, Belleair Area, and Indian Rocks Beach.
