What if you were retired in your sixties, broke, living in a small house on $99.00 a month Social Security check and possessed HOPE there was a better way. What would you do?

The story is about a man from Kentucky who lived to be 90 and what he did the last twenty-five years of his life is how most people remember him today. In fact his image is iconic in America and around the world.

At age 60 he began to evaluate what he did well. He friends said he was a pretty darn good cook. He decided to see if he could get restaurants to use his recipe for a percentage of the profits. He traveled the country cooking up batches of his fried chicken just hoping someone would pay him 5 cents for each chicken sold.

All of this was taking place in the 1950’s and one memorable trip about his fried chicken took him to Salt Lake City, UT. The reason was he was traveling to a Christian Retreat in Australia and Utah was on his way.

So on Aug. 3, 1952, our retired recipe entrepreneur Colonel Harland Sanders of Corbin, Kentucky, arrived in Utah to visit Pete Harman and his wife, Arline.

Read their fascinating story here

Pete and the Colonel had met the year before at the National Restaurant Association convention in Chicago. Both men owned and operated small restaurants that carried their names – Harman Café in Salt Lake City and Sanders Cafe in Corbin, KY.

When you read the story above you will realize that the first KFC was located at Harman Café address 3900 South and State St in Salt Lake City UT

One man’s HOPE that there was a better way was proven correct.

    I got his autograph when I was in high school. He was eating a hamburger at a Big Boy Restaurant.
