Hubby and I traveled to Pigeon Forge last week. I was so glad that he decided to go because that meant I could nap on the way! Little did I know he would veer a bit off course and make a pit stop at a historic landmark.
We visited the first and original KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) restaurant. In 1940 it was the Harland Sanders Cafe. The restaurant, where Kentucky Fried Chicken® got its start, has been carefully restored, and features the original kitchen where the Colonel perfected his Original Recipe® chicken.
They have mini displays and old KFC artifacts. It was interesting to see that the large paper bins in which the flour recipe was delivered, had the ingredients label cut out. The Colonel was very protective of that secret recipe.
Hubby ordered and ate some chicken just so he could say he ate at the original KFC. He gave it a thumbs up.
