Brands is one of the world’s largest restaurant companies with more than 41,000 restaurants in over 125 countries around the globe. We are a company with a Huge Heart and are proud to support the Louisville, KY community in the areas of hunger relief, arts and culture, human and social services.
This summer Yum! Brands Foundation partnered with The Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) Project to complete various acts of service in the Louisville, KY community.
