UPGC was officially established on April 20, 1999. As a result of the
overwhelming success of both the original KFC National Purchasing
Co-operative in the US and Canada and the need to focus on the supply
system as a whole, the unification of two existing purchasing entities,
“Food Service Purchasing of Canada” and Tricon’s “Supply Chain
Management,” became a reality.

The new group would aptly be called Unified Purchasing Group of Canada
Inc. and would be run as a not for profit cooperative owned by and
managed on behalf of the franchisees. 

This new organization would encompass the KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell
brands and include all KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell franchised and
licensed restaurants across Canada.
