The restaurant chain announced today that it had shortlisted Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe Y&R, Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy and M&C Saatchi.

The news comes a month after Weiden & Kennedy resigned the account after holding it for three years.

It is believed the agency was frustrated by the creative potential after a 50 per cent stake in the business was sold by Whitbread to US parent Yum! Foods.

W&K won the Pizza Hut business from Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO in February 2005.
