In 2004 Queensway entered an agreement with Yum! Restaurants International to become the lead franchisee for both the KFC and Pizza Hut brands in Austria and the Slovak Republic. In 2005 the first KFC opened in Vienna and we acquired 5 Pizza Huts in Slovakia. Since then a further 6 KFC Restaurants have opened in the two countries.
In 2009 Queensway Acquired 12 KFC Restaurants in the Midlands and Northwest England. In November 2010 a further 8 restaurants were acquired in the Northwest and we opened 2 new restaurants in Star City and Maypole Birmingham which further strengthened our relationship with Yum! Brands. In addition we have also negotiated the rights to develop new KFC Restaurants in nearby trade zones over the next few years.
