Misleading much? They're not selling the brands, just wanting to franchise company-owned stores.

Had me worried for a moment till I read the article... they're simply unloading corporate run stores onto franchised run stores... Bigger profits for them, less headaches too.

This should actually increase YUM stock value

Pizza Hut hasn't been "yum" since Yum bought them.

Came in to say the same. Thank you.

This looks bad for Taco Bell eventually winning 'fast food wars'.

YUM never bought them, Pepsico did... they split their restaurants from Pepsico stock to YUM brand stock so it wouldn't bring down the Pepsico stock prices...

Is that anything like Taco Town?

I like Pizza Slut. Their crispy crust supreme is fine by me and their asian wings are nearly as good as my own. My very first job was at a Pizza Slut. In 3 months I was doing opens on the weekends. Not bad for a 16 yr old kid. Protip, keep your fingers out of the dough roller. You get scars that stay with you forever. But I could sling a mean pie.

KFC is just awful, Pizza Hut can't get a rational pricing schedule and Taco Bell can't stop making things more greasy and less food like. I have no idea how any of those franchises don't immediately tank.

This is why apt is better than yum.

No debate there - using Debian here

Maybe we'll actually be able to buy Coke at Taco Bell instead of having to choke down Pepsi.

I'm on Ubuntu Precise. Spent all day rolling a brand new .deb package, which frankly is a major pain in the ass. I don't see why they can't just have a simple tool to do everything for you. And then Launchpad is no cakewalk either. Incomplete documentation, slower than shiat, the UI makes no sense at all, and setting up your machine to talk to it takes about 2 hours longer than it should.

That said, I really like apt. From a user's point of view, the whole dpkg system is fantastic. Just not so much for us devs.

This. I hate Pepsi products. I like a Nacho Belle Grande meal now and then, but only buy them maybe twice a year because I don't like the drink options.

There was a local pizza hut that was good up until last year. Too bad too. They used to make perfect breadsticks and their pizzas tasted like I remember from years ago.

One less reason to have a "different" take-out pizza than Papa Murphy's.

I don't normally say, "You sound fat," but you seem like the kind of guy who is always friendly to a tray of cupcakes.

Maybe I'm just a Redhat based guy but I've found yum/rpm easy to use both as a user and a developer (well except on RHEL but that's not yum's fault)

I run Ubuntu at home, finally bit the bullet and upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04 ... yeah I pretty much hate it.

Would you like it more if I told you you can easily disable the global menus, the wacky scrollbars, and make the dock icons smaller?

Because that's what I do every time I install it. :p

Debian with XFCE 4.10 flies.

lol@threadjack pizza thread turned into linux thread

A least you can eat pizza while on linux, but not eat linux while on pizza.

I'm a store manager for a yum franchisee, and I can tell you there are a ton of reasons why these places are having trouble. Imagine a pig in a suit wringing out a money soaked rag.

But what will they do with the YUM! center...?
