LONDON - McCann Erickson and Momentum have picked up the £10 million advertising and direct marketing accounts for Subway.
The two agencies pitched for the business together against Krow, Iris and the Glasgow-based agency Frame, the incumbent on the account. The pitch was handled by the AAR.
McCann will now be responsible for Subway's TV advertising, while Momentum will handle its point-of-sale and digital duties. The agencies will be briefed to create a new advertising proposition that increases footfall into stores.
Frame picked up Subway's regional business in July 2005 and was appointed to the national account in September of the same year.
