Building a world with a little more Yum!

In early 2020, David Gibbs took the helm of Yum! Brands, the American fast-food giant that operates well-known brands including KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, to name a few. After rising through Yum!’s ranks over the decades, becoming President and COO before being promoted to CEO in 2020, he was soon face to face with a worldwide pandemic. In this episode, we hear how Yum! and its 51,000 restaurants in 150 countries successfully navigated the global shutdown. David also unpacks Yum!’s rise , the enduring focus on people, culture and growth, and how it continues to identify opportunities and build a world with a ‘little more Yum!’
