Founder story
Colonel Sanders, KFC
 
Colonel Sanders learnt to cook at age 7 when he had to care for his siblings. When he was 40, he sold fried chicken from a gas station on a highway but had to sell the business due to the highway route shifting away. He started again and began franchising his recipe at age 65, to create what is now known as KFC 🐔 & became its brand image. It is now owned by PepsiCo.
