Since our spin-off from PepsiCo in 1997, we’ve become a truly global company led by over 2,000 world-class franchisees. In 2016, we successfully spun off our China business as an independent, publicly traded company and announced our Recipe for Growth, our multi-year growth strategy to become more focused, more franchised and more efficient.
Our Recipe for Growth strategy includes four growth drivers and is the foundation on which our sustainable, long-term results are built. These drivers will allow us to keep our promises to serve delicious food, make our food ac...cessible to customers, give employees a place to grow and make a difference, offer opportunities for franchisees and deliver strong returns and long-term value. These growth capabilities are the key drivers of same-store sales and net-new unit growth and serve as our guiding principles in all business decisions.
