In 1973, we opened Malaysia’s first KFC restaurant. We have since grown to become the country’s largest restaurant chain operator. We are the only company to have been granted the right by Yum! Brands to establish and operate KFC restaurants in Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and Brunei, as well as Pizza Hut restaurants in Malaysia and Singapore. The majority of our business is derived from our operations in our primary market, Malaysia, followed by Singapore. KFC forms the largest part of our business and the key driver of our growth.
To date, we operate over 1,270 KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants, serving approximately 25.6 million customers a month. Malaysia ranks as the country with one of the largest KFC and Pizza Hut store counts among Yum! Brands’ Global Franchise Network. Our position in the country as the leading restaurant chain operator and an iconic brand among customers has made our restaurants the “Preferred Brand” for partnership with Malaysian corporations.
Our brand equity has been further affirmed through industry awards like the Putra Brand Awards, Malaysia’s Strongest Brands and Yum! Franchisee of the Year.

HALAL INTEGRATED POULTRY AND MANUFACTURING
To support our core business, we operate several complementary businesses based on the “Farm to Fork” model, which ensures a steady supply of Halal-compliant and high-quality ingredients. These operation lines form a vertically integrated business ecosystem from farming to primary processing, to secondary processing, before reaching our wholesale and restaurant operations.
POULTRY INTEGRATIONMalaysia’s operations are the largest amongst all Yum! Brands’ franchisees worldwide
Poultry integration is a crucial segment for our restaurant operations. It not only provides a stable source of quality chickens at very competitive prices, it gives us the flexibility to supply to the fast-expanding open poultry market located locally and abroad. Furthermore, greater control over our supply chain and costs helps us to improve our profitability, ensuring reliability, safety and Halal compliance of our food supply.
In line with this, we are party to a long-term supply agreement with Ayamas, which accounts for a significant portion of the poultry supply to our KFC restaurants as well as providing a steady and secure supply of key ingredients for our business. We also have assurance about the quality of the food, as well as confidence that our supplier is fully compliant with the relevant Halal certification and food safety requirements.
