Be your best self, make a difference, have fun!

KFC Corporation, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the few brands in America that can boast about having a rich, 60-year history of success and innovation. In fact, KFC is the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain and a division of Yum! Brands, the world’s largest restaurant company. Yum! Brands, Inc., has nearly 44,000 restaurants in more than 135 countries and territories and is one of the Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders in North America. In 2017, Yum! Brands was named among the top 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine. The company’s restaurant brands – KFCPizza Hut and Taco Bell – are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza and Mexican-style food categories. Worldwide, the Yum! Brands system opens over six new restaurants per day on average, making it a leader in global retail development.  We’re extremely proud of our 1.5 million employees around the globe and the unique culture we’ve built, one that’s filled with energy, opportunity, and fun. We believe in our people, trust in their positive intentions, encourage ideas from everyone, and have actively developed a workforce that is diverse in style and background. Yum! Brands is great place to be yourself, grow and make a difference. Yum! Brands isn’t your average Fortune 500 company, we like to do things a little differently. From our world-famous culture of fun and recognition to our focus on your career potential, Yum! puts a unique stamp on day-to-day business. You will see why the passion of our people and the power of our brands are just two reasons there’s no place like Yum!.
