Yum brands rejects PETA offer of free property
Yum! Brands, Inc., based in Louisville, Ky., is the world's largest
restaurant company in terms of system restaurants with over 34,000
restaurants in over 100 countries.
Four of their restaurant brands are KFC, Long John Silver's, Pizza
Hut and Taco Bell. The real estate department of Yum! Brands made a $1
million offer this month for property in downtown Norfolk, VA. What Yum!
didn’t know is that the property was owned by the PETA Foundation, which
been engaged in a campaign against KFC for the last 4 years.
PETA, in its letter to Yum! said:
“PETA would be willing to give Yum
this warehouse — free and clear — if KFC requires its chicken suppliers
to adopt the recommendations made by members of its own animal Welfare
Advisory Council on March 11, 2005. A copy of these recommendations is
enclosed for your reference.”
Yum!’s response was, “We don’t do business with corporate terrorists
and, therefore, we no longer have any interest in this property.”
