Yum! Brands, Inc. based in Louisville, Kentucky, is the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of system units with nearly 33,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and territories. Four of the company’s restaurant brands — KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver’s — are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza, Mexican-style food and quick service seafood categories, respectively. Since 1919, A&W All-American Food has been serving a signature frosty mug root beer float and all-American pure-beef hamburgers and hot dogs, making it the longest running quick service franchise chain in America. Yum! Brands is the worldwide leader in multibranding, which offers consumers more choice and convenience at one restaurant location from a combination of KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, A&W All-American Food or Long John Silver’s brands. The company and its franchisees operate over 1,900 multibranded restaurants worldwide generating about $2.0 billion in annual system sales. The company and its franchisees have over 1,800 multibranded restaurants in the United States representing nearly 10% of total traditional domestic units. Outside of the United States in 2002, the company and its franchise partners opened about three new restaurants each day of the year, making it one of the fastest growing retailers in the world. In 2002, the company also changed its name to Yum! Brands, Inc. from Tricon Global Restaurants to reflect its expanding portfolio of brands and its ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange.
