A "unified" mission from the get-go
UFPC began business on March 1, 1999. The two significant entities that merged operations to form UFPC were Tricon’s (now Yum! Brands) purchasing group, called Supply Chain Management (SCM) and the purchasing team of FoodService Purchasing Co-op, Inc. (then FSPC). The unification of these two groups created a single, dedicated purchasing cooperative to serve all corporate- and franchise-owned KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants in the United States.
