Building global, iconic brands people trust and champion

Yum! Brands, Inc., based in Louisville, Kentucky, and its subsidiaries franchise or operate a system of over 53,000 restaurants in 155 countries and territories under the company’s concepts – KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and The Habit Burger Grill. The Company’s KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut brands are global leaders of the chicken, Mexican-style food, and pizza categories, respectively. The Habit Burger Grill is a fast-casual restaurant concept specializing in made-to-order chargrilled burgers, sandwiches and more. Yum! Brands was named to the 2022 Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America and was ranked on  Newsweek’s list of 2023 America’s Most Responsible Companies.

Since our spin-off from PepsiCo in 1997, we’ve become a truly global company led by approximately 1,500 world-class franchisees. In 2016, we successfully spun off our China business as an independent, publicly traded company and announced our Recipe for Growth, our multi-year growth strategy to become more focused, more franchised and more efficient.

Our Recipe for Growth strategy includes four growth drivers and is the foundation on which our sustainable, long-term results are built. These drivers will allow us to keep our promises to serve delicious food, make our food accessible to customers, give employees a place to grow and make a difference, offer opportunities for franchisees and deliver strong returns and long-term value. These growth capabilities are the key drivers of same-store sales and net-new unit growth and serve as our guiding principles in all business decisions.

As we build a world with more Yum!, we’re also sharpening our set of shared values and elevating our brands and business practices through our Recipe for Good, our global citizenship and sustainability strategy. This means listening to and engaging with stakeholders around our three priority areas of People, Food and Planet. We’re on a journey when it comes to our sustainability work and are proud of the progress we’re making on the priority issues that are most material to our business.

We’re also extremely proud of the more than 1 million employees and franchise associates in our system around the globe and the unique culture we’ve built grounded on innovation, inclusion and growth.

There’s a world of opportunities for Yum!, and we’re confident in our brands’ continued journey ahead.
