In 1930 his first chicken dishes served in a gas station in Sanders North CorbinKentucky. The restaurant was then called Sanders Court & Café. Because of his successful formula and contribution to the culinary image of the State honored the then Governor of the State of him the honorary title of Kentucky Colonel. In the following years expanded S the number of seats at his restaurant to 142, and bought a motel on the other side of the street. In the meantime he also worked to the recipe, the most important goal of the preparation time, which lasted 30 minutes, to shorten the time. The recipe he developed in 1940 was eventually known as Original Recipe.With that product, he traveled through the country looking for restaurant owners to take it from him. The first one that showed interest was Peter Harman, in South Salt Lake, Utah, and together they opened the first Kentucky Fried Chicken establishment in 1952. Next, the fast and in the early 1960s of the twentieth century there were 600 branches in the us.

KFC sells chicken products that are prepared according to a special business recipe. Part of the preparation process is that the frying happens under pressure making the preparation time is shortened considerably. In addition to the main product, chicken with a crispy crust, serves KFC also other dishes such as chicken burgers, nuggetsFries or French fries, wraps, various non-alcoholic drinks and desserts. There is also a separate range of products available in different countries, such as kebab, sandwiches, tortillas and biscuits. In addition, in the 21st century in some locations also beef, pork and seafood tried out. [4]


KFC positions itself as most fast food outlets with a standard Interior. At KFC dominating the colors red and white. There is a desk with a row of cash registers where visitors place their order and this usually within a few minutes with us. The dining room, often spread across more floors, is helverlicht and equipped with tv screens showing a closed running tv programming (which are often video clips of songs and there is information and advertising of KFC shown).


Within Yum! Brands is one of the most important brands and KFC is there still the formula doctored. This is how it's done, not only on product development but also experimented with spin-offs of KFC with a slightly different offerings, and over the past two decades the name around the world slowly but surely changed from Kentucky Fried Chicken in KFC. In addition, Yum! Brands now also in many places the combi-restaurants open from KFC with one or more of the other formulas from the chain, as Taco Bell, Pizza Hut etc. Unchanged, in 2013, is to use the Colonel in the logo, and the colors red and white.


When ordering one always gets some refreshing wipes that one his hands after eating the fat hen can cleanse.


Campaign of PETA[Edit]Edit

[4]Protest action at a KFC

The company is under fire for years by animal rights organization PETA, which claims that suppliers of KFC chicken treat unethical , including through them with too much to keep to small spaces, unhygienic to treat, dying animals with antibiotics to keep alive, and to cook them alive. If evidence points PETA on several videos with images from chicken farms by KFC suppliers. These videos are on PETA's Kentucky Fried Cruelty-website (see external links), the site where Colonel Sanders is seen as a bloodthirsty kippenmis trader. In those videos one can see that chickens in beatings, are pulled apart, and be against the wall causing it to shatter. In the logo of the site is S (with Devils horns and vicious looking) to see with a tortured chicken in his hand, and there are also lots of images where S chickens tortures. Here is also to see blood and bruising.

KFC denied the charges In January 2003 by PETA. In March of the same year to a PETA-KFC proposal announced to want to assume that should lead to an improvement in the living conditions of chickens. PETA claims, however, that despite this commitment nothing has changed. On a Dutch poster reported Kentucky Fried Chicken there strictly to ensure that the chickens are death made in a good way, PETA thinks so otherwise.

Super Chick Sisters[Edit]Edit

At the end of 2007, PETA made a game called Super Chick Sisters Super Mario Bros, based on. In this game one can choose to as Nugget or play Chickette . These two chicks also have the Mario and Luigihats, those of Nugget is red with an "N" in it instead of an "M", and that of Chickette is light green with a "C" in it instead of an "L". The object of the game is to Pamela Anderson, which in this game is a Princess and probably as much a role as Princess Peach, Kfc founder Colonel Sanders to free at, which in this game is the main villain and a kippemartelaar. If one on the end must fight against him he wears a mask of Bowser. In this game Mario, the Mario characters also come Luigi and Toad for. In 2010 there is a sequel come up with the name New Super Chick SistersRonald McDonald is the main villain. With this games hopes PETA that children become aware of the living conditions of the animals living in the fast food industry are processed, and that they start thinking about eating meat in General, and at fast food chains as KFC in particular.
