Yum! What is better than having a pizza delivered by Pizza Hut for those fall football games. Or when you are planning a picnic or Mom is getting off late from work, how great it is to stop and get a bucket of that Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) with all the trimmings to feed the family, everyone loves that. When out and about running errands, and for a different change of pace, how do those Taco Bell burritos sound? In fact, you can go to Taco Bell in the morning for breakfast before you hit the road!
KFC is an exemplary example of the American dream. Starting out in Corbin, Kentucky during the depression, Harland David Sanders, opened a roadside restaurant and sold fried chicken. He later figured out that having a franchise would expand his business and in 1952 opened one in Utah. So successful was his brainchild he was able sell his business in 1964 for $2 million dollars. He did all of this in spite of dropping out of school in the 7th grade, guess he didn't have Common Core. There is no finer example of what America is about and Colonel Sanders has remained an American icon. KFC was bought out by Pepsi-Co in 1986.
Taco Bell started out similarly. In 1946, a 23 year old Glenn Bell, WWII Marine veteran, noticed long lines of customers at a near-by Mexican restaurant and decided to start selling similar food at his hot dog stand. By 1962 he opened his first Taco Bell, starting a franchise in 1964, and the rest is history. He sold out to PepsiCo in 1978.
Pizza Hut was started by two brothers, Frank and Dan Carney, Dan being an Air Force veteran, in 1958. Without any formal education on franchising Dan studied KFC and McDonalds methods. In fact, already having a business degree, he went on to get his Master's degree, wanting to write his thesis on the subject, but that idea was rejected by his obviously more knowledgeable professor. Later, without that degree, he was told he should teach a class on the subject. It is obvious Dan was more knowledgeable, guess he didn't have Common Core either. Pizza Hut was sold to PepsiCo in 1977.
These fast food chains have been part of the American lifestyle since the early 60's. All were started by men who reached for and achieved the American dream, not always with an education, but with freedom, hard work and a keen desire to learn, they became successful.
So the next time you enjoy that pizza, fried chicken, or taco remember the American men who had the freedom to start the path to your enjoyment. Then, pause and think about how the face of America is being changed by the United Nation (UN) despots whose goal is to shape the world into a global society under the guise of sustainable development and create a network of global corporate control.
Pepsi-Co is a UN business partner, UN non-governmental organization (NGO), and became a UN Global Compact participant in 2008. As a UN business partner it is important to remember there is an expected commitment to advance UN goals and objectives. In 1997, Pepsi-Co sold KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut to Tricon Global Restaurants, Inc, later known as Yum! Yum! currently manages those franchises but also had previous involvement with A&W and Long John Silvers.
Yum! is a UN business partner and has committed, as required by the UN, to promote UN goals and objectives in partnership with other UN organizations. In 2007 Yum! joined forces with another UN organization, UN World Food Programme (WFP), to raise global hunger awareness and money for the WFP, 15 million to be exact. If you would like to see other UN driven ideologies Yum! has participated in use this link to scroll through the years.
Not forgetting their obligation to the UN for sustainable development(SD) and corporate social responsibility, Yum! has imbedded both UN ideologies into their businesses. Chapter 2 in Agenda 21, page 4, covers how SD is promoted.
Yum! has several SD policies. Naturally, meeting the requirement to support other UN partners, Yum! is a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and have built a number of LEED certified buildings.
As part of the UN sustainable forest agenda Yum! matches the UN policy for forest management and uses products only from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification (PEFC) approved Sustainable Forest Initiative(SFI), both UN certified NGOs.
On target for the UN 2020 SD goal #12, Yum! actively participates in reducing the waste their franchises generate. Calling it "Environment in Action" you can see what other environmental activities Yum! is taking across the world, including Idaho, all for the UN.
Is it nice to know that three iconic American fast food chains, built by American men, are used as pawns to push UN ideology? But remember, what the UN dictates, the UN can change, and the UN can take away. Yum! is just one business example on how the UN promotes their agenda. Without going into more details, a topic that will be covered in future articles, the general scheme here is the UN using corporate and foundation partnerships to indoctrinate you on their agenda, all the while promoting themselves within the ranks. The UN goal is to eventually have a world corporate governance, not built by American men who can freely decide how they want to run their business and succeed, and not managed by the state in which you live.
What would Harland, Glenn, and Dan think? In honor of those men, maybe consideration should be given to boycott any business that engages with an organization of despots.
