NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2022 / Yum! Brands' Head of Global Franchising Wanda Williams recently appeared on the International Franchise Association's Her Success video podcast. During the discussion, Wanda talked about the Yum! Center for Global Franchise Excellence at the University of Louisville and the launch of the Yum! Franchise Accelerator program.

In 2021, Wanda spearheaded the launch of the new Yum! Center for Global Franchise Excellence, in partnership with the University of Louisville, to provide existing and potential franchisees multiple levels of online education focused on the franchising model across industries.
