Yum Brands now has 34,000 Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell restaurants around the world – 2,000 more than McDonald's can boast. Every day last week it opened three new restaurants, a third of which were in China. Sales in the 201 Pizza Huts and 1,378 KFCs in China grew 17% in July. The company is now making a £110m profit there, leaving McDonald's trailing. Yum was created in 1997 when it was spun off from PepsiCo. The Business 28/08/05 page 9
