KFC signs: Old and New

    Newer Older

    KFC started as Harlan Sanders Cafe in Corbin, Ky. He owned a motel and a restaurant along highway US25. When the interstate was built, fewer people drove past the place, and it almost went out of business until he passed the fried chicken recipe to a franchise. Now, the 11 herbs and spices are eaten everywhere.

    In the foreground is the original Sanders Cafe sign which sticks out of the entrance. In the background is the really tall 1980's bucket sign that you can see from the interstate. Of course, these days the powers that be market the fast food chain as KFC and not Kentucky Fried Chicken in most places

      Can I post it for I need an image about franchising? I'm choosing between this and McDo but this image is historical. www.secondwindconsultants.com/?p=4106
