Kentucky Fried Chicken’s humble beginning dates back to 1930, when Harland Sanders opened a small kitchen in the front part of a gas station in Corbin, Kentucky. Sanders’ chicken was so popular that he was named a Kentucky Colonel in 1936. He kept his now-famous moniker, Colonel Sanders, as he continued to build upon his success. The company began selling franchises in 1952 and today there are KFC restaurants in over 80 countries, all serving up Sanders’ signature recipes.
