Woodcuttingfool blog about Colonel Harland David Sanders. After reading it, I also checked out the Wikipedia page on Col. Sanders. I am sure the trash-can chicken served by KFC today is nothing like the original served by the man himself.
The KFC brand is owned by Yum Brands (NYSE: YUM), along with Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and WingStreet. David C. Novak is the current Chairman/President/CEO. He previously worked at PepsiCo and is a director of JP Morgan and Bank One. Yum! Brands is a spin-off from PepsiCo.
