Atlanta Agency Comes Up Short In Uno’s PR Review

Uno Restaurant Corp. has assigned its public relations account to Cone.

The Boston-based Omnicom shop bested Mullen in Wenham, Mass., and Fletcher Martin Ewing in Atlanta in a review for the business. Billings have not been determined.

“We were very impressed with the strength of the team, their creativity and their level of expertise with consumer public relations,” said Heyward Whetsell, senior vice president of marketing at Uno.

Cone is in the early stages of developing a public relations campaign promoting Uno’s upcoming 60th anniversary, said agency president Jens Bang.

The Boston-based client operates about 180 Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar & Grill restaurants.
