    KFC is turning away customers where I live.
    Me and 4 other customers drove away rather than sit in the drive-thru when we saw the lobby was closed.
    People actually want to sit down in AC and eat, not sit with their car idling for 20+ min just to eat in their car.

    $22/hour in 2023?

    Mexican pizza coming back Thursday! My wife is going to bump yum brand a couple points by herself

    Taco Bell has a serious problem with long waits at the drive thru. Personally I think the co-branding with KFC is what is slowing them down. People are waiting for someone else who wants three buckets of fried chicken when all they want is a couple of tacos.

  • P
    What’s driving yum?
  • D
    Why did management announce the 14% increase in the dividend one day before earnings? Shouldn't that news be combined with earnings? Hmmm

    NewsYum Brands veteran and new CEO David Gibbs is wasting no time putting his stamp on the business.

    Actually, make that a grill mark.

    Gibbs — who officially took over from longtime Yum Brands (YUM) CEO Greg Creed on Jan. 1 — signed off on the $375 million acquisition today of The Habit Grill. The purchase price of $14 a share represents a 33% premium over Habit’s Jan. 3 closing price. Yum Brands said it will fund the transaction using cash on hand and available borrowing capacity under its credit facilities.

    Habit will join a portfolio of iconic Yum Brands fast-food businesses: Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    Shares of Habit (HABT) — which were down 6% over the past year leading up to the deal news — surged 32% in early trading. Yum Brands shares fell slightly.

    “We’ve emerged from our three-year transformation stronger and in a better position to accelerate the growth of our existing brands and leverage our scale to unlock value from strategic acquisitions,” Gibbs said in a statement.

    Cramer spoke on this stock today. Not like I give AF about what he says, but he noted 135-140$. Corroborates my thesis. Earnings should be good on this one assuming results aren’t adulterated by shortages. This stock has run up pre earnings…. We should see $125-127 I suspect. Any takers for $130 plus?

    I think it`s time to take some profit here, how does everybody else see it?

    Call was a lot of ra ra. I would of asked about the makeup of the comps. Considering huge price increases to offset massive inflation in inputs those comps reflect a drop in transactions when reopening should be pushing those up. This looks like mid single digit negative transactions which would say the budget consumer is getting squeezed. It will be harder to hide in Q2. Prices have already gotten out of hand. I can eat fast casual or even sit down for a similar price to KFC and Taco Bell now. Franchisees are getting slammed on profit margins and have big development obligations. Only so much cash to go around. Something has to give….

    I'm done with pizza hut and YUM Brands. YUM brands pushing their woke culture initiatives on children has made me sell my stock. No way I'm going to give my hard earned investment dollars to a management team that willfully alienates over half of their customer base.

    Personally, I don't think the book is that big of a deal, but I still can't understand these companies willingly putting themselves in the middle of controversy. I see a bunch of comments of support of people saying, "I will buy Pizza Hut tonight!" but how long will that last when a whole set of people are going to be angry with them for much longer.
    Companies should make products and avoid inviting divisive, partisan politics (or even the hint of them) into their realm. Now they have a costly headache to deal with. Makes no sense to me.

    "How Pizza Hut is pursuing equity as an expectation at every level of its business"

    Completely woke company. SELL.
