Punk Foodie Partners with Atlanta's Springs Publishing


ATLANTA - Punk Foodie, the love letter, fanzine and directory newsletter and Instagram account for the Atlanta underground dining scene, has partnered with Springs Publishing, Atlanta’s leading hyperlocal media organization. The partnership will see Punk Foodie’s underground dining listings syndicated across Springs sites including Reporters Newspapers (covering Brookhaven, Buckhead, Dunwoody, and Sandy Springs), Atlanta Intown, and the Rough Draft newsletter.

The syndicated content covers the ‘who, when and where’ of what’s going on in the fluid, dynamic Atlanta underground dining scene, which includes food trucks, pop-ups and other agile food entrepreneurs who have no set schedule, but simply appear at breweries, pubs, and restaurants for an afternoon or evening.

Many of Atlanta’s hottest restaurants started off as pop-ups or food trucks including Talat Market, OK Yaki, Little Bear, Lazy Betty, and CHE BUTTER JONEZ. Punk Foodie’s listings pull from a continuous tracking of various social media platforms and a database of over 700 active underground chefs and 300 venues and will allow readers to experience emerging chefs before they make it to the big time.

The initiative follows in the footsteps of other Springs Publishing partnerships with WABE, Atlanta Civic Circle, Georgia Public Broadcasting, and Saporta Report, which position local media for a very bright future. This is Springs Publishing’s first partnership with a local social media platform, demonstrating a unique vision to work the best of local content, no matter the size or type.

Sam Flemming, the #1 Punk and founder of Punk Foodie, said about the partnership, “We are thrilled to join the growing and esteemed list of Springs Publishing local content partners to help readers keep their finger on the pulse, and bring light to Atlanta’s creative, diverse, unique, and burgeoning dining scene.”

Keith Pepper, owner and publisher of Springs Publishing, said “To nobody’s surprise, dining stories are some of our most popular, and by partnering with Punk Foodie, we are able to broaden our scope to provide our readers with cutting-edge news and information about the robust pop-up scene.”
