Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is a fast food restaurant chain that specializing in fried chicken and is head quartered in Kentucky in the United States. The company is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, a restaurant company that also owns the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell chains.

KFC was founded by Harland Sanders, an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during thee Great Depression. Sanders identified the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first “Kentucky Fried Chicken” franchise opened in Utah in 1952. KFC popularized chicken in the fast food industry, diversifying the market by challenging the established dominance of the hamburger.

KFC’s original product is pressure fried chicken pieces, seasoned with Sanders’ recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Larger portions of fried chicken are served in a cardboard “bucket”, which has become a well known feature of the chain. Since the early 1990s, KFC has expanded its menu to offer other chicken products such as chicken fillet burgers, and wraps, as well as salads and side dishes. KFC is known for its former and current slogan, “Finger Lickin’ Good”, which was replaced by “Nobody does chicken like KFC” and “So good” in the interim.


Special note :  I am a pure vegetarian and the views about Chizza are entirely of a colleague who went for the launch with me and some part of the review has been used in edited form from the Press Release..
