Consumer PR agency Frank PR has announced it has won the Australian account for food delivery service Deliveroo following a competitive pitch.
Beating off competition from seven other agencies, Frank PR will handle all of the consumer PR for the rapidly-growing food delivery company in the local market, including media and influencer relations, content creation and amplification, and global and local campaign delivery.
