Unlike fast food chains like McDonald's, the face of the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise is that of a real person, Harland Sanders. While millions of people would quickly recognize this white-haired elderly face with black-rimmed glasses, very few actually know the story behind the face. The background of the man and the franchise is quite dramatic, to say the least with a mix of inspiration, devastation and frustration. For many, they only see the story representing the American Dream of a man who had a rough childhood pulling himself up by his bootstraps and working his way to success with pure hard work and determination. While some of this is true, there is much more to this Colonel’s story.
