The main focus will be to increase traffic, but Wieden's work will also highlight Pizza Hut's recent introduction of healthier options such as a lower fat Pizza called Hi-Light, and an extension of its salad range. Wieden & Kennedy beat independent London agencies WCRS and Clemmow Hornby Inge, as well as Bartle Bogle Hegarty
