Checker Drive-in Restaurants, Clearwater, Fla., chose five finalists from a field of eight agencies vying for its $10 million-plus account. The finalists include: Fitzgerald & Co. and Austin Kelley Advertising, both Atlanta; Berenter Greenhouse & Webster, New York; and Marc, Pittsburgh. One agency was undisclosed by consultant Select Resources International, West Hollywood, Calif. The account since 1966 had been at Crispin Porter & Bogusky, Miami, which isn't participating in the review. Work sessions and final presentations will take place over the coming three weeks with an expected decision in October.
