Today, we’re talking about Yum Brands.
Yum Brands, parent company of KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and The Habit Burger Grill, held its annual investor day last week in New York City and it’s hard to imagine a more confident company right now. Executives touted their diverse portfolio and scale as providing a major advantage against a relentlessly uncertain economic backdrop and presented several examples to support their case.
KFC, for example, is testing several technologies worldwide to create more consumer access and ease operations, and Taco Bell’s CEO Mark King said that chain has big opportunities to grow its lunch and breakfast day parts, and its footprint, to be on par with McDonald’s.
Here to share her key takeaways from Yum Brands’ investor day is executive editor Alicia Kelso.
