Brands Inc., based in Louisville, Kentucky, is the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of system restaurants with nearly 34,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and territories. Four of the company’s restaurant brands—KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver’s—are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza, Mexican-style food and quick-service seafood categories respectively.
