Do you think outside the bucket like KFC?
Did you know that Colonel Harland David Sanders (September 9, 1890 – December 16, 1980) died 35 years ago today, at the age of 90 years old? He is best known for founding the fast food chicken restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (now known as KFC) and later acting as the company’s goodwill ambassador and symbol. His name and image are still the primary symbols of the company today.
Sanders held a number of jobs in his early life, such as steam engine stoker, insurance salesman, and filling station operator.
Fact is… He began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in North Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. Sanders recognized the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first KFC franchise opened in Utah in 1952. The company’s rapid expansion across the United States, Canada, and overseas was overwhelming for Sanders and in 1964; thus he sold the company to a group of investors led by John Y. Brown, Jr. and Jack C. Massey for $2 million.
If Harland David Sanders can go from selling chicken from his roadside to franchising KFC across the United States, Canada, and overseas, just think of where you are now and how easily you can be much greater in the very near future. Make 2016 your best year ever!
