KFC founder biography in English

"Colonel" Harland David Sanders (September 9, 1890 - December 16, 1980) was an American entrepreneur. He started a company called Kentucky Fried Chicken. 

Sanders was born on September 9, 1890 in Henryville, Indiana. He studied at Southern University.


He married Josephine King and later settled down. He later married Claudia Price. Sanders had 3 children. He died on December 16, 1980 in Kentucky. He was 90 years old.

Very few people will know the name of Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). Colonel Sanders had his own small business, which used to run his livelihood, but due to the highway there, his business stopped. 

With in a few days, his capital was also exhausted and there were lulls of food. Now he was almost 65 years old and the situation was that he had nothing left to lose.

Colonel Harland Sanders loved to make chicken and was very confident of his chicken experiment, he went out to market his chicken making experiment with spices and presser cooker. 

They started meeting different restaurants. Time still did not support them, one by one all the restaurant owners kept rejecting them.

What is KFC ?

Who does not know this company KFC .. Those who eat chicken will be well aware of this company. Yes, I am talking about KFC is a fast food company. The main site of this fast food company is in the US. This company is the second largest company in the world to make fast food. And in the first place is Macdonald.


This story of Colonel Sanders is enough to shock anyone. A man who struggled all his life, but in his last days, he set an example of success, which anyone would listen to and boggle his fingers.

His father died when he was 5 years old and had to leave school at the age of 16.

By the age of 17, he was fired from 4 jobs
Got married at the age of 18! Conductor job from 18 to 22 years of age

Went to army fired

Went to enroll in law school, rejected
Started insuring people - failed

Becomes a father at the age of 19
At the age of 20, his wife left him and took the baby with him.

Worked as a chef in a hotel

Tried to kidnap her to meet her own daughter - Fell

Retire at age 65
On the very first day after retirement, the government received a check of only $ 105

Tried to commit suicide several times

Once, while sitting under a tree, he was writing about his life, then realized that a lot more had to be done. He was a great cook (Babarchi).

Withdraw $ 87 from a $ 100 check and fry some chicken and bake it in street 

Remember a person who was trying to commit suicide at the age of 65

The same person, that is, Colonel Sanders, the owner of 88 year old billionaire Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), today owns KFC hotels worldwide and today KFC has become a very big brand.

Whether you like chicken or not, that's another matter. But Colonel Sanders' struggle is truly heartbreaking. A man who spent his entire life struggling. Even tried to commit suicide at the age of 65, the same person became a billionaire by the age of 88.

I was really inspired by the story of Colonel Sanders.
