Yum! In The News
Lead with #SmartHeartCourage
Published on March 28, 2020
At Yum!, KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and The Habit Burger Grill, we lead with smart, heart and courage. This mindset helps us forge ahead when faced with challenges, and that’s especially true with the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re witnessing so many examples in which our people are developing innovative solutions, supporting those in need and braving each day in an uncertain environment. Each week, we’ll share a few of them with you in hopes that they’ll inspire you to lead with smart, heart and courage in your area of the world.
Today, we recognize:
- SMART: Jack Griffin, a Taco Bell Live Más scholar who developed the FoodFinder app, which connects hungry Americans to nearby food pantries. Since the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, FoodFinder has reached four times as many people.
- HEART: In partnership with its literacy nonprofit partner, First Book, Pizza Hut U.S. has provided more than 55,000 books to children whose schools have been closed due to the coronavirus.
- COURAGE: KFC team members in Australia are hygiene heroes for being one of the first QSR brands in the country to close dine-in areas of their restaurants, implementing social distancing guidelines and disinfecting door handles, benches, pin-pads, register screens and keyboards to keep everyone safe.
