This is Jing-Shyh S. Su. He is 58 years old. He is the President of Yum! Brands (KFC, Pizza Hut), China. In 2010, he made $14,318,020.00.
How does that happen? How does a guy go from growing up in a Communist country and end up making so much money? My guess is hard work and a lot of luck.
He studied chemical engineering and got an MBA. He joined KFC (formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken) in 1989 and was in charge of their 4 stores in China. Under his direction, this western food became very popular in a country that has long been known to be very traditional.
He introduced Pizza to China in the 1990s. He opened the country’s first drive through restaurant in 2002. Now, Mr Su runs 3000 restaurants in 450 cities. He serves more than one billion customers a year. And they pay him $14,000,000 to do it.
At Johnny-Sells, we’ll never get that big, but it’s something to shoot for. We’ve shipped merchandise to China, but just a few short of a billion. There’s always hope!
