The Colonel

Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC, at age 70, only had some savings and social security benefits to his name. He had started some restaurants before and believed his chicken to be the best in the world. So for the next few years, he traveled the country, sleeping in his car, and visited random fried chicken restaurants. He would convince the owners to let him cook his chicken there and if they agreed his chicken was better he would convince them to rename themselves Kentucky Fried Chicken and pay him $0.04 per piece of chicken they served. After he had amassed a wide expanse of KFC locations across the country, he continued traveling to visit his locations. If he thought the food wasn’t up to his standard, he would throw it on the floor and curse at the employees. His favorite phrase was to call the food “God-damned slop” as he was yelling at the employees.
