Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM.) owns and operates KFC, a global chicken restaurant chain with a long history of success and innovation. Colonel Harland Sanders, a cook, came up with a finger-lickin’ excellent recipe more than 75 years ago, scribbled out on the back of his kitchen door with a list of secret herbs and spices. In more than 25,000 restaurants in more than 145 countries and territories throughout the world, we still follow his formula for success, with actual cooks breading and freshly preparing our delicious chicken by hand.
