Yum Brands gets into the burger businessThe Press-Enterprise/The Orange County Register 01/06/2020
The Habit Burger Grill has been acquired for roughly $375 million by Yum Brands, the parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. “It’s a burger concept by name, but really the menu is much broader than that. And we love the fact that they have a flame-grilled product, which gives them the opportunity to do other proteins,” said YUM Brands CEO David Gibbs. The fast-casual restaurant chain operates 270 locations in 13 states and seven countries. Yum Brands has more than 49,000 restaurants in 145 countries.
