Where It All Began

Published by at 10:55 am under travel

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 ChickenĀ® got its start, has been carefully restored, and features the original kitchen where the Colonel perfected his Original RecipeĀ® 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.

      I need one of them coats down here, where do you get those things at? LOL We are under another freeze warning if you can believe it.

      I hope they updated that original kitchen because I’m sure it would be a fire hazard right about now.

      Ahh…!!! I LOVE THAT PLACE. It’s hilarious. Though I thought it would have been more rustic. We took a trip to that place on a random roadtrip to tennessee.

      did you get a chance to visit the Colonel’s grave? There’s a yellow line that goes straight to him. It’s awesome!

      That’s awesome. I would love to be able to say that I had eaten at the original KFC. I bet that was definitely a site to see too.
