Company Description

Yum Brands is a U.S.-based restaurant operator featuring a portfolio of four brands: KFC (25,000 global units), Pizza Hut (17,600 units), Taco Bell (7,400 units), and The Habit Burger (290 units). With $50 billion in 2020 systemwide sales, the firm is the second-largest restaurant company in the world, behind McDonald's ($90 billion) but ahead of Restaurant Brands International ($31 billion) and Starbucks ($19 billion).

Yum is the newest evolution of Tricon Brands, formerly a division of PepsiCo, and generates the bulk of its revenue from franchise royalties and marketing contributions.
