Yum's Strong International Positioning and Taco Bell Strength Underpin Durable Growth Narrative

Sean Dunlop Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Sean Dunlop |

The restaurant industry has changed a lot over the past three years. We remain encouraged by the ability of the largest operators, including Yum, to accelerate critical investments in e-commerce platforms, delivery integration, and technological solutions that meet the demands of the modern restaurant consumer. Recent acquisitions demonstrate the emphasis the firm has placed on digital enhancements, with 45% of systemwide sales now coming through digital channels, which we expect to remain integral to Yum's strategic playbook.

Yum Brands is a U.S.-based restaurant operator featuring a portfolio of four brands: KFC (27,760 global units), Pizza Hut (19,034 units), Taco Bell (8,203 units), and The Habit Burger (346 units) at year-end 2022. With $59 billion in 2022 systemwide sales, the firm is the second-largest restaurant company in the world, behind McDonald’s ($116 billion) but ahead of Restaurant Brands International ($39 billion) and Starbucks ($27 billion).

Yum is the newest evolution of Tricon Brands, formerly a division of PepsiCo, and generates the bulk of its revenue from franchise royalties and marketing contributions.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
