Birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)

Monday, January 21, 2013
Once I was a kid out of curiosity I always wonder where the Kentucky Fried Chicken comes from? Then as I grow up I became aware to State of Kentucky. But I didn't know that's where it started. One day my husband brings me to Corbin City. Corbin is one of the few cities in Kentucky, the population was 1,779 at the 2010 census. We went to the Harland Sanders Café and Museum, the restaurant where Colonel Harland Sanders developed the fried chicken recipe that would later become famous as Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Trivia:  In 1932 Colonel Harland Sanders bought the small restaurant near this site. Here he combined good cooking, hard work, and showmanship to build regional fame for his fine food. His restaurant and motel, now gone, flourished. To serve his patrons better Sanders constantly experimented with new recipes and cooking methods. Here he created, developed, and perfected his world famous Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe. In 1956 plans were announced for a Federal highway to by-pass Corbin. Threatened with the traffic loss, then 66 and undaunted, sold the restaurant and started traveling America and selling seasoning, and his recipe for fried chicken to other restaurants. His success in this effort began the world's largest commercial food service system and made Kentucky a household word around the world. Colonel Sanders continued to travel up to 250,000 miles a year visiting KFC restaurants around the world until his death in 1980 at the age of 90. (by friends of Kentucky's greatest goodwill ambassador.)

  1. Thanks Miss Leah for sharing this. Now I know kung saan nagmula ang ever popular na Kentucky fried chicken haha. Minsan lang napapansin ko, sa bawat branch ng KFC iba-iba ung consistency ng gravy nila. minsan may sobrang thick, minsan naman ang labnaw lols.
