Why the name Yalla?
"Yalla" captures our personalities, energy and who we are as women. We like to work hard, have fun and above all, we are proud southern women. We wanted to make sure all of those were visible and heard in our company name. One word we love to use that symbolizes us? Y'all. We decided to put a fun twist on the word that was sure to make everyone smile! Welcome to Yalla Public Relations, where we hope to make your brand HOLLA!
