KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)

Founded by Harland Sanders, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has become one of the largest restaurant chains in America. Not bad for a person that began selling fried chicken in Kentucky during the Great Depression.  The first KFC franchise opened in 1952 and Sanders became the spokesman for his product as "Colonel Sanders."  Although Sanders sold his famous chain in 1964, his likeness and name are still a part of the fast food establishment.  Although the fried chicken is the most popular item on the menu, there are several other delicious items to choose from including the following dishes.

Bacon Bonanza: Do you like the combination of bacon and chicken? You can ask the folks at KFC to add bacon to any chicken sandwich. It's also rumored that you can actually ask them to add bacon to any menu item. But that's just a rumor. It may or may not be true, like Big Foot.

Bowls Galore: Create your own KFC bowl just the way you like it by adding anything (or everything) on the menu. But be careful, it all adds up!

Hot Pocket Bowl: This special treat includes a hot pocket bun, chicken, corn, cheese and gravy. The Hot Pocket Bowl is a tasty and filling treat.
