YRI Information Getting Started With YRI - Apply Online

YUM! Restaurants International will help you work through the process.

Here's a closer look at our new franchisee approval process. First, you need to make sure that YRI is actively seeking candidates for new franchisees in your country of choice. Then, you will need to fill out our "Franchise Information Request Form". If you are selected, the Regional Franchise Recruitment Manager (RFRM) will contact you and send you a more detailed Franchisee Application. Once the RFRM receives your completed Franchisee Application, the Local Franchise Recruitment Manager will contact you regarding the additional requirements of the approval process.

Our 3 Step Program

1. Contact and Application:

  • Start by filling out our Franchise Information Request Form:
