Born in 1890, Harland Sanders wore many hats before establishing his secret recipe with 11 herbs and spices. He left school in the sixth-grade and took jobs such as fireman, insurance salesman, army mule-tender and politician. By 1930, he was the owner of a service station and began cooking for travelers who stopped for gas. This was a hit, and soon he perfected his recipe and cooking technique that would become Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The spice mixture is a multi-million dollar formula that is protected by security precautions, even today. The introduction of the bucket of chicken was as innovative as the decision to use a pressure cooker to ensure the food was tender and juicy every time. The colonel was an ambassador for his brand, and he often showed up at a franchise location to promote his high-quality, delicious fried chicken. He was a humble man who believed integrity was the essential ingredient for success.

The Colonel sold his company to an investor group that included John Y. Brown Jr, a future Kentucky governor, in 1964. He continued to be the official face and spokesperson of the brand until the 1980s. Throughout that time, he became one of the more recognizable people on earth. PepsiCo, Inc. acquired the brand in 1986 and spun it off into Tricon Global Restaurants Inc. in 1997. Today, Yum! Brands, Inc., the parent company of KFC, is the largest restaurant company, employing more than $1 million associates worldwide in nearly 33,000 locations.
