A Message from David Gibbs

“Yum! recently integrated our Recipe for Growth – the guiding principles of our business strategy – with our Recipe for Good, our roadmap for socially responsible and sustainable stewardship of people, food and planet. We have elevated the importance of people within both of these frameworks, which allows us to continue building an equitable and inclusive culture that, in turn, helps us better serve our customers and communities where we operate.”
