Yum! Brands to acquire Rostik’s KFC

Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, will take over Rostik’s KFC, with the Russian Federal Anitmonopoly Service approving the sale of the company.

Yum! Restaurants International Management will acquire a 100% stake in Cyprus based Cyprus Caramel Restaurants Ltd. which owns 99% of the shares in LLC Russian caramel Restaurants which owns the property on which Rostik’s is located.

In 2005 the two companies had signed a partnership agreement to develop Rostik’s KFC and more than 300 restaurants were supposed to have been opened. Investment was to total around $100 million, with $30 million of it coming from Yum!Brands. Today there are 150 Rostik’s KFC restaurants operating in Russia.
