DID YOU KNOW: How Kentucky Fried Chicken Got Its Start In Utah
But wait a minute?! Wasn't the first KFC located in Salt Lake City? Yes, it was. Let me explain, because there has been much discussion and debate about this, and I finally found the correct answer:
Sanders opened a service station in Corbin, KY, and in the back he opened a lunchroom that consisted of one table surrounded by six chairs. Not long after opening, Sanders' fried chicken became the most popular item ont he menu, and he found it necessary to expand. By 1937 Sanders' Cafe was up and running, seating 142 customers.
