How Our Brand Was Born
A lot of people ask us where the name “Brown Pelican WiFi” comes from. The photo below kind of says it all. We had a boat in Sausalito, where we would see dozens, and sometimes hundreds of Brown Pelicans. They are inspiring, courageous, elegant, comical and beautiful. We felt fortunate to share space with them, and we decided on the name one morning over coffee when there were “squadrons” feeding in the bay.
