Learn About KFC Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchises
There's Fast Food...Then There's KFC!
In 1939, Colonel Harland Sanders first gave the world a taste of his most famous
creation, Original Recipe Kentucky Fried Chicken, featuring that secret blend
of 11 herbs. In 1952, he signed up his first franchisee and thus began the
legend that is KFC, the largest chicken fast-food empire in the world. Millions
of people have come to love his one of a kind chicken, home-style side dishes
and hot and fresh biscuits.
Today, more than a billion of the Colonel's "finger lickin' good" chicken
dinners are served annually. And not just in North America. The Colonel's
cooking is available in more than 80 countries and territories around the world.
And with Yum! Brands, you can bring one to YOUR city.

All-American Food Restaurants, Long John Silvers, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell
restaurants, and is the world's largest restaurant company in terms of system
