About Yum!

About Company!

The Yum! Brands story is simple. We have the three distinctive, relevant and easy global brands - KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Habit Burger Grill - born from the hopes and dreams, ambitions and grit of passionate entrepreneurs. And we want more of this to create our future!

As the world's largest restaurant company we have a clear and compelling mission: to build the world's most love, trusted and fastest-growing restaurant brands. The key and not-so-secret ingredient in our recipe for growth is our unrivaled talent and culture, which fuels our results.

We're looking for talented, motivated, visionary and team-oriented leaders to join us as we elevate and personalize the customer experience across our 55,000 restaurants, operating in 145 countries and territories around the world!

Employees may work for a single brand and potentially grow to support all company-owned brands depending on their role. Regardless of where they work, as a company opening an average of 8 restaurants a day worldwide, the growth opportunities are endless. Taco Bell has been named of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World by Fast Company; Pizza Hut delivers more pizzas than any other pizza company in the world and KFC's still use its 75-year-old finger lickin' good recipe including secret herbs and spices to hand-bread its chicken every day.
