Casual dining chain Village Inn has selected WorkInProgress as its agency of record, following a review which initially included 15 agencies before narrowing down to 5 finalists.

WorkInProgress will be tasked with increasing brand awareness, affinity and traffic across its footprint. The full-service assignment includes creative across TV, radio, digital and more.

“We were drawn to WIP because of their ability to create breakthrough work that spurs people into action,” Village Inn vice president, marketing David Craven said in a statement. “We’re in a highly competitive and commoditized category and WIP will help us stand out, meaningfully and authentically.”
