KFC is one of the 50 most recognised consumer brands in the world. An extraordinary achievement for a concept which started in a remote rural town in Kentucky, USA, in the 1950s. KFC was the first quick-service restaurant to come to the UK, way back in 1965. These days, there are over 700 shops in the UK and Ireland, with many more opening every year. Whether it’s popcorn chicken, Zinger burgers or simply a boneless box, customer can’t get enough of the Colonel’s secret recipe.
