A FAMILY AFFAIR
OUR FAMILY MAKES PICNICS FOR YOUR FAMILY
Pensacola Picnic Co is a boutique picnic service offering a one-of-a-kind mini dining experience. We specialize in crafting luxury picnics that are inspired by your unique personality. Every picnic we craft is different, and we cherish the opportunity to get to know you and share in your celebrations, vacations, and happiest life moments.
Based in Pensacola, Florida, we are owned and operated by beach people-meaning this isn’t just a job to us, we live and breathe by oceanside sunsets and sandy toes. After years of travel and military life we finally settled down with our blended family in Jon's hometown, Pensacola. We knew right away that this was the lifestyle, the community, and the childhood we wanted to lead for our family. Now, Pensacola Picnic Co. is a full family affair, where we, Jon and I, and our five-kid bonus family gets to enjoy slow living, quality time spent together, and serving you.
Our favorite thing to do is grab a pizza and set up our own picnic on the beach, watch the sunset and just enjoy one another's company. We hope that when you choose to work with us, you get the experience this little slice of heaven that we call home.
WITH STRONG VALUES
OUR VALUES GUIDE US IN OUR DAILY LIFE BOTH
AS A FAMILY AND AS A BUSINESS
As a family and as a business we take responsibility for our actions. We practice honesty in all that we do, and want to do right by you and our community. Specifically, we aim to be transparent about our business operations, support local businesses, and uphold Leave No Trace practices for all outdoor events.
WE LEAD WITH
Being a part of your special events is way more than just a job to us: it is our happy place! We love what we do, we love our community, and we love nothing more than spending time with you. This joy is what drives us to give you the best possible service. We really do believe that when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
WE TREAT OTHERS WITH
We believe that your picnic experience is far greater than just a meal at (an exceptionally well crafted) table. It is every interaction that you have with us from start to finish, and every interaction we have with our community. So, in the hopes of brightening the day of everyone we meet, we lead every exchange with kindness and mutual respect.
Founder & Lead Picnic Planner
Hi! I am Mariann--owner of Pensacola Picnic Co. I moved to Pensacola in June of 2020 and immediately knew this was where I was meant to be. I grew up in MD, eventually married a military man, had two beautiful boys, and moved all over the world. After a very messy divorce I eventually met my best friend and the most amazing man, who is now my husband. He made it all possible and supported all of my crazy ideas and without his unwaivering support, PPC would have never happened. He was from Pensacola and so naturally when he retired from the Army, we made this our home. We had a lovely intimate wedding at one of my favorite spots on Pensacola Beach where I officially became a Greene and bonus mom to 3 beautiful kiddos.
One of my favorite things to do here was to grab a pizza from Papa's Pizza and a blanket and take the boys to the beach to eat dinner and watch the sunset. It was my favorite place to be, at the beach with my people! I started a whole business that let that be my life. After a really tough time as a single mom, this life feels like a dream! I don't take a second of it for granted and truly love Pensacola and it's small town beach vibe!
