KFC

Est. 1937

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Harland Sanders founded his first restaurant in 1937 under the name Sanders Court & Café. The firm’s first franchise was in 1952, and by 1963 there were 600 restaurants across the US – making KFC the largest fast food chain in the nation at the time. The company claims to be “one of the few brands in America that can boast a rich, decades-long history of success and innovation.” The business established the KFC Foundation in 2015, which has provided $18mn in funding to more than 6,400 of its employees and students to help with education and personal finance.
