Why Choose KFC?
KFC is the world's most popular chicken restaurant chain, specializing
in our famous Original Recipe® fried chicken
It all started with one cook who created a finger lickin' good recipe more than 75 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen. That cook was Colonel Harland Sanders, of course, and today we still follow his formula for success, with real cooks breading and freshly preparing our delicious chicken by hand in nearly 15,000 restaurants in more than 125 countries.
From the heart of the U.S. to the farthest reaches of Africa, Latin America and Asia—we're passionate about bringing the fantastic taste of our Original Recipe to as many people on the planet as possible. With the help of incredible franchise partners around the world, we've become one of the fastest growing retail brands, both in emerging and developed markets alike.
