9780615809977: Finger Lickin' Good!: The Story of Colonel Sanders

A ONE MAN PLAY about one of the most recognized faces in the world...Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken!!! Although he is most well-known for the eleven herbs and spices that made Kentucky Fried Chicken famous world-wide, Harland "Colonel" Sanders' life was about much more than fried chicken. The man whose face became synonymous with "finger-lickin' good" chicken used hard work and perseverance -- not to mention a little luck along the way -- to become recognized as Kentucky's most famous citizen. Armed with only a sixth-grade education, Sanders worked a number of jobs over the years -- an army mule tender, railroad worker, tire salesman, and farmhand. In 1930, he moved to Corbin and opened a lunchroom behind a service station that had room for six people sitting at one table. His restaurant grew rapidly, and in a short time, he was operating Sanders' Cafe, which seated 142 patrons. His customers made fried chicken the most popular item on the menu. He might have worked in that cafe for the rest of his life if it weren't for the building of Interstate 75, forcing him to sell his place at auction. Sanders was now in his mid-sixties, an age when most people take the opportunity to retire. He decided to go out on the road, traveling the country showing restaurants how to make Colonel Sanders' Kentucky Fried Chicken. By 1963, there were more than 600 outlets selling his chicken.
