KFC prides itself on good food at good prices. They know exactly where their chicken comes from, down to the farm and how it was reared. All of the chicken is cooked in-store, and once it has been breaded, there is a 2-minute time scale in which KFC cooks must place them in the fryer. This ensures freshness is locked in and safe for the customer to eat. KFC are also a Public Health Responsibility Deal partner and want to provide customers with all the nutritional values that are a part of their meals. Each meal has their ingredients and values easily visible on the side of their boxes. So if you’re looking for healthier choices, you can pick easily from the menu.

KFC was founded in 1930, in Indiana USA. By 1935, the company was doing so well, that the governor of the state named him “Kentucky Colonel”. By 1939, the secret recipe for their crispy chicken coating is perfected and is still used to this day. In 1950, the Colonel wears his white suit for the first time, and wears it for public appearences ever since. The logo for KFC has seen him in this suit for years. By the 1970’s, KFC’s started popping up around the US, growing in popularity. By 1980, the Colonel dies, leaving a legacy behind. By the 2000’s, there are nearly 1000 stores in the UK, and palm oil is replaced with rapeseed oil, to help the environment and produce healthier food for customers. Today, you can still find the tasty recipe used by the colonel years ago. The recipe for their famous chicken still remains a secret, with only a handful of people knowing the truth in 2016. Many youtubers and food bloggers have tried to crack the mix of herbs and spices that make up the recipe, however no-one has come close to cracking the colonel’s top secret recipe.
