Yum! Restaurants International
Yum! Restaurants International (YRI), based in Dallas, Texas, is a powerful global growth engine for Yum! Brands, with more than 14,330 restaurants outside the U.S. and China Division in over 110 countries (Q1 2011).
One of our four key business strategies is to drive profitable international growth. YRI's demonstrated track record of growth and expansion of the KFC and Pizza Hut brands around the world has been a large part of our success. YRI is a diverse, high-return business, with $589 million in operating profits in 2010 and 884 new restaurant openings in over 75 countries. 2010 was YRI's tenth year of opening more than 700 new restaurants outside of the U.S. and China.
We have strong local teams around the world, operate in more than 110 countries and territories with established supply chains and have more than 700 international franchisees. Our franchise and joint-venture partners are driving growth by opening a vast majority of our new international restaurants.
Our international business is one of the key factors that make us truly unique in the restaurant industry. For example, our KFC business in France enjoys the highest unit volumes of any KFC business in the world. For a fifth year, Pizza Hut has been ranked as the #1 most trusted food-service brand in India in a consumer survey in The Economic Times. Yum! is also at the beginning of taking Taco Bell global and plans to make a serious investment behind launching Taco Bell internationally.
