Colonel Harland David Sanders was the founder of the famous fast food chicken restaurant chain ‘Kentucky Food Chicken,’ popularly known as ‘KFC.’
He worked as an insurance salesman, steam engine stoker and filling station operator, before he started selling fried chicken from his restaurant in Kentucky.
His ‘secret recipe’ soon became popular in the US. He opened his first ‘KFC’ franchise in Salt Lake, Utah, and devoted all his time in franchising his chicken all over the world.
Due to his increasing age, he sold his franchise to a group of investors and handled operations in Canada. He himself became a brand ambassador for ‘KFC.’ We have curated some of his valuable quotes on hard work, failure, confidence, work, dream, and kindness.
You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it - because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don't you see?
I could see it wasn't going to be easy. I couldn't give a franchise to any old greasy spoon. And I knew the chicken had to be cooked the way I told them to cook it if it was going to be as popular as it could be.
I don't fear that a man will wear out as quickly as he will rust out.
In 1968, 'Liberty Magazine' had an article about George Wallace in which he stated he would suggest me as a possible vice-presidential candidate, along with other choices such as 'Happy' Chandler and General Curtis LeMay. However, I am not interested in any political office in the United States or anywhere, now or back in 1968.
