KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is a famous and booming food chain not only in our country but all over the continents.
A glimpse of the life of the founder of the famous chicken food chain:
In 1930, the then 40-year-old Sanders was operating a service station in Corbin, Kentucky, and it was there that he began cooking for hungry travelers who stopped in for gas. He didn’t have a restaurant yet, so patrons ate from his own dining table in the station’s humble living quarters. It was then that he invented what’s called “home meal replacement” – selling complete meals to busy, time-strapped families. He called it, “Sunday Dinner, Seven Days a Week.”
As Sanders’ fame grew, Governor Ruby Laffoon made him a Kentucky Colonel in 1935 in recognition of his contributions to the state’s cuisine. Within four years, his establishment was listed in Duncan Hines’ “Adventures in Good Eating.”
As more people started coming strictly for the food, he moved across the street to increase his capacity. Over the next decade, he perfected his secret blend of 11 herbs and spices and the basic cooking technique that is still used today.
In 1955, confident of the quality of his fried chicken, the Colonel devoted himself to developing his chicken franchising business. Less than 10 years later, Sanders had more than 600 KFC franchises in the U.S. and Canada, and in 1964 he sold his interest in the U.S. company for $2 million to a group of investors including John Y. Brown Jr. (who later became governor of Kentucky).
Interesting story right?
It’s always ‘I can’t stop on popping’ line that’s repeating on my head as I enjoyed one of their special menus. Hmm the taste and smell just feels so right. This is an incredible chicken meal I ever had and I’m not mistaken with the choice I made for the dinner.
KFC’s Italian Roma for me
Chinese Imperial for Bryan
And hot shots and mushroom soup to spice it up.
We went home smiling and satisfied with our dinner. And when I try to remember that evening, I can’t help but salivate. Silly me! :P~
