Harland Sanders, and the inspiring story of KFC

Harland Sanders, known as Colonel Sanders, was not born with a golden spoon. His life was a rollercoaster of experiences, ranging from working as a farmer to selling tires. He went through different professions, such as steam locomotive stoker, insurance salesman and even gas station operator. His trajectory was marked by ups and downs, but there was something that moved him intensely: his passion for cooking.

After many twists and turns and numerous failed attempts, Harland made the decision to open a modest roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky. It was in this small establishment that he began to hone his culinary skills, developing a "secret" mixture of herbs and spices to prepare his famous fried chicken. "Café do Coronel" gained prominence for its delicious homemade food, conquering palates everywhere.

The idea that became a success

After overcoming financial challenges, he came up with the idea of selling his unique fried chicken recipe to other restaurants, in exchange for a small percentage of each portion sold. At age 62, Sanders partnered with an entrepreneur who ran the largest restaurant in the city of South Salt Lake, Utah, in the United States. Its recipe proved to be a resounding success, boosting the restaurant's sales by a staggering 75% and setting it apart from other local competitors.

And so KFC was born, with the iconic figure of Sanders emblazoned on its branding, wearing his signature white hat and suit. Harland Sanders demonstrated that it's never too late to pursue your dreams and achieve success. Her journey inspires people of all ages to believe in their passions and fight for their goals, regardless of the obstacles that may come their way.
