Although not everyone from Kentucky eats K.F.C. there is no doubt that the K.F.C in Kentucky is better than not only anywhere else in the US but also anywhere else in the world. Nobody knows why it’s better– it’s a Kentuckian secret, and we will never share it with outsiders.

KFC started simply enough when Harland Sanders opened a service station along Route 25 in Corbin, Kentucky and made some money on the side by selling hot meals to passing drivers. The good ‘ole Southern fare was so finger licking good that it quickly became popular and earned Sanders the title of honorary colonel from the Kentucky governor in 1936 and a mention in Duncan Hines’s 1939 book Adventures in Good Eating.
