CCA's beverage range which includes Coca-Cola, Sprite, Mount Franklin and Barista Bros, and the agreement follows other business wins for CCA with Hungry Jack’s, Red Rooster, Oporto and Hilton Hotels.

CCAs managing director of Australian Beverages Peter West said the string of wins were solid building blocks for Amatil’s Australian Beverages’ growth.

CEO of Pizza Hut Australia Phil Reed said CCAs products were popular with the pizza chain's customers.
