Four Agencies Emerge as Finalists In Papa John's Advertising Agency Review

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - December 10, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - After receiving requests from more than 60 agencies to participate in its agency review, Papa John's International, the world's third-largest pizza delivery company, today announced four finalists have emerged to be its creative agency of record: Arnold Worldwide, based in Boston; Doner, headquartered in Detroit; BBDO and Grey, both based in New York City.

"These four agencies were chosen as finalists based on their creativity and integration, QSR experience and record of winning for their clients," said Bob Kraut, Papa John's CMO.

Papa John's initiated the search, which is set to conclude in Q1, 2014, to ensure it has the right resources to help the brand achieve its next level of growth. The incumbent, ZGroup Advertising, is not defending the creative portion of the account. ZGroup retains media planning/ buying and co-op marketing duties.

Papa John's spent about $120 million in major measured media last year, compared to $105 million in 2011, per Kantar Media. Ad spending in the first half of 2013 was almost $60 million.

NJS Consulting, an independent advertising consulting firm, is assisting with the selection process.
