I personally think that it is just a smoke screen to confuse us all, and it seems to be working. Many of these parent companies would rather stay below our radar for some reason! Curious, isn't it?
They Give you the Illusion of Choice
Who would you rather give money to Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut or Taco Bell? Well it doesn’t really matter because all three are owned by the same company: Yum! Brands Inc.
Many familiar companies have a hand in a much more varied range of products than you would expect. Pepsi Co owns Quaker oats, which means it owns a huge variety of cereals, rice snacks, pasta dishes and even baking mixes. Pepsi also owns several chip companies and even some types of coffee.
But hey, maybe those types of products aren’t your thing, so you’re gonna completely ignore Pepsi by sitting home and enjoying a nice cup of Lipton Tea. Yeah, you see where this is going: Pepsi owns Lipton too.
See what I mean? You just never know who owns what anymore! More than a little confusing!
Coffee inside again today. I'm thinking that it's just too warm to sit outside, ya know?
