The Problem

As a profitable, expanding business, Yum! needed to meet growth targets and increase net new store openings each year.

To assist with this, understanding the total market potential in terms of number of stores to open in a given country to saturation, was key.

Similarly, opening in the right location where they will generate highest return on investment was hugely important when applying the expansion across the globe.

This is closely linked with understanding the likely performance based on what really drives performance of existing stores, and identification of the payback horizon for new restaurants.

"The service, help and support that Geoplan consistently provide, demonstrates their great customer focus. No request ever seems too much trouble and is dealt with professionally and with great enthusiasm."
