The Franchising Industry Reaches Out To Haiti

There has been a concerted global effort to get help and aid to the earthquake-ravaged state of Haiti following the horrors of last week's earthquake. We're happy to say that some of the bigger players in the franchise industry are making important donations.

Late last week we saw McDonald's pledge $500,000 to Haitian earthquake victims - a sum that was quickly matched by Arcos Doradoas, a franchisee who runs 1,700 McDonad's restaurants throughout Latin America. Yum Brands, who run KFC, Taco Bell, PIzza Hut and others have also pledged half a million dollars to the Haitian cause, this time via World Hunger Relief.

"The situation in Haiti is devastating and our sympathies go out to everyone impacted," said David Novak, Yum CEO.

Burger King have also stepped up to the plate and have made a generous donation to the relief effort. As a whole, we've seen a very generous display by the restaurant industry as a whole. Obviously, there is much more that can be done, but it is nice to see franchising make some contribution to a very worthy and urgent cause.
