Yum! Brands Inc, the fast food company, has said that system sales for its KFC and Pizza Hut brands in India grew 26% and 11% respectively for the quarter ended March 31. Both brands have posted positive system sales growth for ten consecutive quarters.

Samir Menon, Managing Director, KFC India, said, "The quarter ending March 2019 marks the tenth consecutive quarter of positive system sales growth, with a 26% system sales growth for (KFC) India and area countries. This continued momentum attests to our three-pronged strategy on building our core business through exciting innovation like KFC Double Down, strengthening affordability across the menu categories and expanding access through new store openings and delivery."

"The burger chain’s association with food aggregators over the last few months has also helped the restaurant chain reach more consumers," he added.

Yum! is operating via two franchise partners, namely RJ Corp-owned Devyani International and Sapphire Foods, in India. While Sapphire is operating more than 250 outlets of Pizza Hut and KFC in India and Sri Lanka, Devyani International manages a bulk of KFC, along with Pizza Hut among other restaurants.
