Your career with world of possibilities!
I moved to Louisville from Chicago to take a job on Yum!’s HR team and to be closer to my wife’s family. Louisville definitely surprised me. I thought it would be suburbia, but it’s far from a sleepy, Southern town. And six years later, Yum! gave me the opportunity as a senior HR leader at Taco Bell in Irvine, so I traded horse racing and bourbon for surfboards and kombucha!”
Taco Bell Vice President of People and Experience
My career has taken me from Canada to Thailand to the U.S. What I love about Yum! is the ability to work across not only different geographies, but also different functions. My experience in finance has taken me into general management and strategy, which has helped broaden my leadership skills and been rewarding both professionally and personally. It’s been an exciting journey and so great to see our great culture transcend across geographies – we are one big happy family in 145 countries!”

Strategy and Repeatability
I was born in Cairo but call Louisville home. I started at Yum! as an HR and engineering intern in Kentucky, but have since worked in four continents, visited 10 countries and experienced cross functional assignments in 11 different roles within the business in nine years.
At Yum, everyone has a seat at the table, and I feel valued for who I am and what I bring to the team as well as encouraged to pursue my passions outside of work.”
KFC Delivery Lead
Johannesburg, South Africa
I love working for a global company that encourages all employees to be their best selves, make a difference and have fun! Over the past 10 years, I’ve been fortunate to have some amazing opportunities to grow and to develop. So far, the highlight of my career has been the opportunity to live and to work in Sydney, Australia.”
KFC HR Development Manager,
Why would a Harvard grad and New York City lawyer return to Louisville, Kentucky? Yum! Brands is a fantastic company doing exciting, cutting edge things, that’s why! Also, Louisville is cool, y’all! There’s a foodie scene (ahem, Top Chef), the arts (NYC tests out its Broadway plays at our Humana Festival) and the largest privately held forest dedicated to education and conservation in the eastern United States. I am thrilled to call it home.”
