Some additional points of interest:
- KFC’s original funding was the Colonel’s $105 Social Security cheque - the rest is history!
- Colonel Sanders’ first meals were served to hungry travelers visiting his service station in Corbin, Kentucky in 1930. He did not have a restaurant, but served meals at his own dining table in the living quarters of the Corbin service station.
- The secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices was first developed in 1939. The same recipe is still used across the world today.
- It really is a secret recipe, locked away in a vault in Louisville, Kentucky. Only a handful of people know the multi-million dollar recipe and they have signed strict confidentiality contracts. Not even the spice companies that mix the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices know the complete recipe.
