- Colonel Harland Sanders

Raise a bucket to the Colonel on September 9th as KFC Canada pays tribute to the inventor of the world's most famous Original Recipe — KFC's famed 11 herbs and spices.

KFC's Original Recipe was first perfected by KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders more than 50 years ago in Corbin, Kentucky.

The Colonel, born on September 9th, was 40 years old when he invented the modern day service station and began selling home-cooked, juicy, Kentucky Fried Chicken to hungry travelers at his gas station. His slogan — "Sunday Dinner. Seven Days a Week."

Five years later, the Governor of Kentucky made Harland Sanders a Kentucky Colonel thanks to the popularity of his cuisine.

In 1955, at age 65, the Colonel was devoted to opening Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants around the world, including Canada's first — in Calgary, Alberta in 1956. Until his death at age 90, he logged an average 250,000 miles a year visiting KFC restaurants around the globe.

Quality is what makes KFC Chicken Taste So Good

To this day, KFC Original Recipe is one of the world's most coveted secret recipes — and KFC still carefully cooks chicken to perfection and to the Colonel's exacting standards.

In fact, the recipe is so secret that it is locked away in a high-security vault in Louisville, Kentucky — and only a very few know the Colonel's secret blend.

Even the mixing of the recipe is a top security event — with different KFC teams (in different buildings and companies!) mixing parts of the recipe before it's all combined and mixed in a top-secret location.

What's not a secret is the fact that KFC Canada uses only high quality chicken that's grain-fed and hormone-free. Throughout the day, KFC cooks hand-bread fresh, Canadian chicken with the famous Original Recipe secret blend. Then, the chicken is cooked to juicy, golden perfection.
