Pizzeria Uno Seeks a No. 1 For PR Support

Uno Restaurant Corp. has named three finalists in the re-view for its public relations account.

Cone in Boston, Mullen of Wenham, Mass., and Fletcher Martin Ewing, Atlanta, are in contention, according to Heyward Whetsell, senior vice president of marketing for the Boston-based client.

The shops will make presentations later this month, with a decision expected soon thereafter, Whetsell said. Billings are undisclosed.

For the past two years, the client has handled public relations in-house. Before that, the account was at Richards/Gravelle Public Relations in Dallas.

The client operates about 180 Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar & Grill restaurants, mostly in the Northeast and the Midwest.
