Yum! is the only foreign trademark registered in Iran in the fast food sector, says the legal director of Z.K.D. Corporation, the representative of the American brand in Iran.

“Burger Sun by Yum” has managed to secure the required licenses to set up business in Iran, ILNA quoted Ali Shabani as saying.

“The corporation aims to launch close to 300 branches in Iran within the next three years. The first branch will be opened in Tehran’s Andarzgou Boulevard in about a month,” he added.

Shabani noted that each branch is expected to create direct and indirect jobs for 30 people who will all go through relevant training to be able to offer better services to customers.  

Yum! Brands based in Louisville, Kentucky, has more than 43,000 restaurants in about 140 countries and territories. It is ranked number 218 on the Fortune 500 List with revenues of over $13 billion in 2015. The company’s restaurant brands KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza and Mexican-style food categories.
