Yum Brands beats on KFC growth, Taco Bell weighs

YUM

"They (offer) cheap, inexpensive food and the demand is still there. But it is not a big point of differentiation. You could go to a (convenience) store and get the same thing," said Tim Powell, a restaurant analyst at Chicago-based Q1 Consulting. The Mexican-inspired chain has been a major growth driver for Yum Brands in the past two quarters, riding on the popularity of its value meals. The restaurant chain has also expanded its delivery in the United States, making the most of Yum Brands' investments in GrubHub Inc. But Taco Bell's same-store sales rose 4 percent in the latest quarter, falling short of the 4.47 percent estimated by analysts, according to IBES estimates from Refinitiv.
