Papa John’s Co-op Shifts Account To Austin Kelley

Austin Kelley Advertising has picked up the ad account of Papa John’s Atlanta Co-op, the client confirmed.

The Atlanta shop, a member of the Interpublic Group of Cos., won the business following a review against undisclosed contenders. Billings are $2 million.

“We were impressed with Austin Kelley’s media expertise in the Atlanta market and their depth of retail experience,” said Caren Read, regional marketing director for the Louisville, Ky.-based client.

The account is the final piece of Papa John’s business to leave Fricks/Firestone in Atlanta.

AKA will handle media duties and field marketing for the co-op’s 88 company-owned and franchised fast-food restaurants.
