KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is a global chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants with its operational headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky in the United States. It was developed and built by Colonel Harland Sanders, who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky from 1930. Sanders was an early pioneer of the restaurant franchise concept, with the first Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise opening in Utah in 1952. The company's rapid expansion meant that it grew too large for the aging Sanders to manage, and he sold the company to a group of investors in 1964. Sanders continued to act as the chain's goodwill ambassador until his death in 1980, and his image remains an important part of the company's branding and advertisements, where he is often known simply as The Colonel. In 1971, Kentucky Fried Chicken was sold to Heublein for $285 million who were taken over by R.J. Reynolds in 1982, who sold the chain to PepsiCo for $850 million in 1986. PepsiCo spun off its restaurants division as Tricon Global Restaurants in 1997, which subsequently changed its name to Yum! Brands in 2002. As a Yum! subsidiary, KFC is a core component of one of the largest restaurant companies in the world. By December 2011, there were over 17,000 KFC outlets in 105 countries and territories, making it the second largest restaurant chain in the world after McDonald's. Its two major single markets are in its home country and China, which together contain around half of all KFC outlets. KFC primarily sells fried chicken pieces and variations such as chicken burgers and wraps, as well as side dishes such as french fries and coleslaw, desserts and soft drinks, predominantly from PepsiCo. Its most famous product is its pressure fried Original Recipe chicken pieces, which are flavored with Sanders' 1939 recipe of 11 herbs and spices. The exact nature of these ingredients are unknown, and represent a notable trade secret, perhaps second in notoriety to only the Coca-Cola formula. In the mid 1990s, KFC witnessed protests from leftist and nationalist groups upon its arrival in India. Eric Schlosser’s book Fast Food Nation (2002) and Morgan Spurlock's film Super Size Me (2004) were two prominent critiques of fast food and its consequences. KFC has been especially hard hit by negative publicity as the target for much of PETA's anti animal cruelty campaigning, although KFC executives have protested that the chain is unfairly singled out for criticism. In the 2000s, campaigners were able to persuade the chain to change to healthier frying oils in a number of regions. The chain has also been accused of contributing to the destruction of the world's rainforests with its unsustainably sourced cardboard and paper packaging.
