$YUM’s pizza chain Pizza Hut has struggled in recent quarters due to heavy competition, mainly from $DPZ. But its effort to turn around the franchise through more advertising and promotions are finally paying off. Notably, $YUM revitalized KFC in 2015 to boost deflated sales, after which the chicken chain saw 13 quarters of same-store sales growth.

$YUM stated that on the business slowing in the future, the company is seeing a timing mismatch when the company is cutting G&A and getting savings versus the loss of operating profit from re-franchising.
