Yum! Buys Martech Platforms Ticktuk and Kvantum

Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and more, is clearly a martech enthusiast. They just bought online ordering and marketing platform Tictuk, following an early March deal for AI-based consumer insights and marketing analytics firm Kvantum. It’s intriguing that Yum! wants to own this technology, especially since McDonald’s may sell part of the Dynamic Yield personalization platform it acquired in 2019.
