KFC, IT'S FINGER LICKI'N GOOD
Kentucky Fried Chicken, more commonly known by its initials KFC.
It is an American fast food restaurant chain that specializes in fried chicken. KFC was
founded by Colonel Harland Sanders, an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his
roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky during the Great Depression.
Sanders identified the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first
"Kentucky Fried Chicken" franchise opened in Utah in 1952.
Colonel Sanders, the creator of KFC, was born on September 9th, 1890, he was an American businessman,
best known for founding the fast food chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken (now known as KFC), and later acting as the company's brand ambassador and symbol.
His name and image are still symbols of the company. At the age of 40, Sanders was running the popular Kentucky service station that served food so popular, in fact,
that the governor of Kentucky designated him a Kentucky colonel. Eventually, Sanders focused on franchising his fried chicken business around the country,
collecting a payment for each chicken sold. The company went on to become the world's largest fast-food chicken chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Sanders sadly died in Louisville, Kentucky, on December 16th, 1980, but his greatest innovaation will never be forgotten.
