Yum! Brands Inc. To Test A New Fast-Casual Asian Concept
The first of the new fast-casual restaurants, called Yan Can after TV celebrity chef Martin Yan's TV cooking show, "Yan Can Cook," is slated to open San Francisco in late June. Average meals will range from $6.50 to $7.50 and will feature several dishes created by Yan, who served as a consultant for the restaurant's design and menu development.
"America loves Asian food. We're excited to test this new restaurant concept with Martin Yan, who is to Asian food what Colonel Sanders is to KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)," David Novak, Yum! Brands' chairman and chief executive told reporters.
According to Yum!, Yan Can's menu will include dishes inspired by several Asian cultures including: Chinese, Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese.
