Franchising with Taco Bell and Yum! Brands
This is your opportunity to invest in Taco Bell and Yum! Brands and experience
the power of big, category-leading brands!
We believe there has never been a more exciting time to be part of Taco Bell and
Yum! Brands! When we created Yum! Brands, we had the privilege of possessing a
heritage of success established by the founders of KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell,
Long John Silver's and A&W All American Food. Their leadership and innovation
helped launch the quick service restaurant industry. The brands they created
enjoy worldwide recognition and popularity. Yum! Brands is the biggest
restaurant company in the world in terms of system units and we are the
worldwide leader in most of our product categories.
Multibrand with Big Brands!
Multibranding gives you the opportunity to operate two brands in one
location. Yum! believes multibranding can bring great excitement to the future
of the quick service industry. Operating more than one brand allows you to
"eliminate the veto vote" and give your customers a WOW experience. Research
shows that consumers prefer multibrand restaurants six to one over single brand
With two category leading brands, national media budgets, and complementary
dayparts, KFC-Taco Bell has been our most powerful multibrand combination and is
clearly one of the best development opportunities in the industry.
