KFC Franchise Information - There's Fast Food...Then There's KFC!
In 1939, Colonel Harland Sanders first gave the world a taste of his most famous creation, Original Recipe® Kentucky Fried Chicken, featuring that secret blend of 11 herbs. In 1952, he signed up his first franchisee and thus began the legend that is KFC, the largest chicken fast-food empire in the world. Millions of people have come to love his one of a kind chicken, home-style side dishes and hot and fresh biscuits.
Today, more than a billion of the Colonel's "finger lickin' good" chicken dinners are served annually. And not just in North America. The Colonel's cooking is available in more than 80 countries and territories around the world. And with Yum! Brands, you can bring one to YOUR city.
KFC is just one brand owned by Yum! Brands, Inc. Yum! Brands also owns A&W All-American Food Restaurants, Long John Silvers, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants, and is the world's largest restaurant company in terms of system units with nearly 32,500 in more than 100 countries and territories.
Franchising with KFC and Yum! Brands
This is your opportunity to invest in KFC and Yum! Brands and experience the power of big, category-leading brands!
We believe there has never been a more exciting time to be a part of Yum! Brands and KFC! 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 Silvers, and A&W. 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, and we are the worldwide leader in our product categories!
Do You Have What It Takes? Commitment. Capital. Capability.
While Yum! franchising is a fantastic opportunity for many, it may not be for everyone. We're looking for entrepreneurs with the aptitude to build a business. In fact, we are looking for a three-store commitment over a three-year period. If you're one of these people, have a look at the following criteria to see if Yum! is right for you:
Multibranding and Markets of Opportunity
- Do you have capital to grow?
- Do you have a passion for operations?
- Are you committed to building people capability?
Yum! Brand, the leader in Multibranding, is looking for energetic new franchisees to share in our purpose and passion for Customer Mania by putting a Yum! on customers' faces around the world. You can leverage our foodservice and Multibranding experience to capitalize on market development opportunities.
Yum! believes Multibranding is the key to the future of the QSR business. Owning more than one brand allows you to "eliminate the veto vote" and give your consumers a "WOW" experience. Research shows that consumers prefer Multibrand restaurants six to one over single brands.
What Do You Get With Over 50 Years of Franchising?
- Proven support from Yum! & KFC - You become part of an organization with tremendous franchise support including advertising, business coaching, training, development and cooperative sourcing. We strive to work as "one system" because it's the best way to meet our customer's needs. You invest in us. We invest in you.
- Advertising & Marketing - Yum! is committed to making KFC even bigger. Last year alone, Yum! and its franchisees spent more than $600 million in consumer advertising. National marketing news is communicated regularly throughout the year. Many markets have local advertising cooperatives to coordinate local marketing activity. Franchisees are encouraged, but not required, to participate in system promotions.
- Franchise Recruiters - Yum! Franchise Recruiters will help you through the new franchise approval process - from qualification to discovery day, to site identification and registration. Franchise Specialists will explain how to qualify as a Yum! Brands franchisee.
- Coaching - KFC has Franchise Business Coaches (FBCs) and/or Franchise Business Leaders (FBLs) to provide business insight and instruction as you operate your KFC. As you move into steady-state operations, your FBC or FBL will keep you abreast of important business initiatives, organize key regional training activity, and be your primary point of contact.
- Training - Yum! requires that each franchisee complete Management Team Training prior to the opening of their KFC. Single brands require six to eight weeks training for key restaurant personnel. Multibrand training depends on your level of previous quick-service restaurant (QSR) experience.
- Yum! University - Yum! University is the training and development arm of Yum! Brands, Inc. Its primary mission is to provide global support for the education and institutionalization of key Yum! leadership programs for both company leaders and franchisees.
- Standardized Building Plans/Yum! Development Services - Yum provides franchisees with standardized building plans for all endorsed brand combinations, including typical site layouts, exterior and interior facility design, architectural specifications, standard equipment schedules, equipment cut sheets, and cost baselines.
- Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op, LLC (UFPC) - UFPC provides supply chain management services exclusively for all corporate and most franchise-owned A&W(r) All-American Food, KFC(r), Long John Silver's(r), Pizza Hut(r) and Taco Bell(r) outlets in the United States. Since March 1999 UFPC has saved Yum! more than $539.6 million by negotiating costs, making volume purchase commitments and assuming other procurement functions and risks that reduce suppliers' costs.
