Hundred Proof Promotions was developed by Gretchen Kirchmer. Since accidentally throwing a party in college that resulted in making more money than a week behind the bar, she realized that she would someday run an Event Coordination and Promotion company.

After taking major roles in the marketing an promotion of various start-ups, as well as serving as the Director of Events for a Northside Chicago bar group, she decided to follow her dream... and was fortunate to have some clients follow her, to wherever that dream would take her.

Hundred Proof Promotions was born, and is proud to focus in the hospitality, and  food & beverage industries that make Chicago the "city that is worth the winter."

Hundred Proof Productions is a Chicago-based LLC that specifically focuses on the  promotion and production of events, held internally by this city's finest establishments.
