The story of KFC begins on September 9, 1890, the day our known and beloved Harland was born in Henryville, Indiana.
Ambition and creative spirit accompanied Colonel Sanders from an early age when he had to fend for himself. The loss of his father at the age of 6 made him responsible, taking care of his siblings while his mother was away at work.
The spirit of adventure pushed him to leave his parental home at the age of 12 and start working on a farm in Greenwood. Over time, he was a soldier in Cuba (for 6 months), a firefighter, a motorman, he managed to study law through correspondence and practiced what he learned in selling insurance.
With this series of diverse experiences, it is no wonder that he would soon lay the foundations of a culinary empire. Over time, he managed to become a master in the preparation of certain traditional dishes, including the tasty fried chicken. His delicious recipe first reaches the public when Harland, at the age of 40, buys a motel in Corbin – Kentucky and starts serving chicken in the on-site restaurant.
For nine years, the Colonel devoted himself to this passion, the recipe consisting of special cooking techniques, along with 11 herbs and spices being modified several times until the final version used today was reached.
Confident in his own recipe and in the quality of the chicken he prepared, Colonel Sanders devoted himself to his own business. He traveled the Americas, visited several restaurants, and cooked the chicken for its owners and employees according to his original recipe. At first, his business involved a verbal agreement with the restaurant owner, who agreed to offer Colonel Sanders 5 cents for each piece of chicken sold.
Soon, chicken lovers everywhere fell in love with the Colonel’s secret, and more than 600 restaurants in the United States and Canada sold chicken prepared according to the appetizing recipe. In the same year, he ceded the rights to the recipe to a group of investors that included John Y. Brown Junior, the governor of Kentucky at the time.
The Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant network soon expanded and grew rapidly due to the new owners’ passion for food, well-being, and support. It was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1969, and more than 3,500 restaurants worldwide began operating under its license after the acquisition of KFC Corporation by Heublein Inc. for $285 million.
As of today, there are more than 25,000 KFC restaurants in more than 145 countries and territories all over the world.
Every day, the restaurants are supplied with fresh chicken, provided by local producers. Over 75% of chicken used in restaurants comes from local producers. Calibration of products is important, so they work with several suppliers to ensure the necessary quantities at all times.
Fresh chicken is cooked daily by chefs in each restaurant. Every location has its own chefs, with different responsibilities for each stage: marinating, seasoning with the flour and spice mix, respectively cooking.
The oil used in restaurants meets all quality standards and is passed through an automatic filtration system, in accordance with industry-regulated procedures.
Their original chicken comes in a large variety of options, including the famous “bucket” meal. But besides these, the customers can choose from various burgers, wraps, sides, salads, and desserts.
One of the main benefits of the KFC menu is its affordable prices. You will have to pay only around $5 for one of their combos that includes a main dish, a side, and a medium drink. The price of the family meals would be anywhere between $10 and $35, depending on the number of people.
