I firmly believe our culture is a competitive advantage for Yum! With culture as the driving force behind our results, I’m pleased to share the following highlights from 2019:
In closing, 2019 marked the successful conclusion of our massive transformation, and we began 2020 with the exciting news that we are adding The Habit Burger Grill to the Yum! family. This deal should enable us to offer an exciting new investment opportunity to our existing franchisees and expand an award-winning, trend-forward brand through the power of Yum!’s unmatched scale.
That said, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues to rapidly evolve, and our No. 1 priority is the health and safety of our employees, franchisees and customers. We are closely monitoring the situation and the ever-changing intelligence from public health, travel and national security authorities in countries where we operate to ensure we protect our people, customers and brands. With our franchisees, we have industry-leading action plans, standards and policies in the restaurants to prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19. As the world’s largest restaurant company, our customers span ages, backgrounds and borders, and we remain committed to serving them in a way that protects their health and safety. Times like these are a reminder that we are all globally connected and each have a role to play in helping others. At Yum!, we are committed to doing just that.
