At Yum! we're building a vibrant global business by focusing on four key business strategies:
- Build leading brands across China in every significant category
- Drive aggressive international expansion and build strong brands everywhere
- Dramatically improve U.S. brand positions, consistency and returns
- Drive industry-leading, long-term shareholder and franchisee value
Results for 2012 once again affirmed our consistent record of success with 13% Earnings Per Share (EPS) growth, which marks the eleventh straight year we delivered at least 13% growth and exceeded our 10% EPS growth target. For the full year 2012, we opened 1,976 new restaurants outside the U.S. Importantly, we achieved Return on Investment Capital (ROIC) of 22%+ and continued to be an industry leader.
We're proud of the unique culture we've built, one that's filled with energy, opportunity, and fun. We believe in our people, trust in their positive intentions, encourage ideas from everyone, and have actively developed a workforce that is diverse in style and background. Yum! is a place where anyone can, and does, make a difference.
