3d ago


Welcome to Kentucky Fried Chicken. Our world famous chicken restaurant brand all started with one cook, Colonel Harland Sanders, who created a finger lickin’ good recipe more than 75 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen.

He started travelling by car to different restaurants and cooked his fried chicken on the spot for restaurant owners. He did this at the age of 65.

If the owner liked the chicken, they would enter into a handshake agreement to sell the Colonel’s chicken. Legend has it that Colonel Sanders heard 1009 No’s before he heard his first yes.

  • The Colonel’s story still inspires us today. It reminds us how grit, perseverance, dedication and ambition along with hard work can create success;
  • regardless of your age or where you come from.

    Our purpose as an employer is to empower our people to find their own secret recipe in life too.
