At Yum! Brands, we truly believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to do business with us. We also know that leveraging unique perspectives and talents allows us to support the emerging needs of our customers and the marketplace. That’s why we focus on attracting, developing and retaining diverse franchisees and suppliers.
To demonstrate our commitment to franchisee diversity, we established a Minority Lending Assistance Program in 2010 focused on aiding qualified prospective minority franchisees in their efforts to enter the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell systems. Our goal is to increase the number of minority franchisees and minority-owned restaurants in our system.
Yum! Brands has been recognized by the International Franchise Association (IFA) with the Ronald E. Harrison Award for our accomplishments in Diversity and Inclusion.
