Harland Sanders

Harland David Sanders was born on September 9, 1890 in Henryville, Indiana. His father was a farmer until he broke his leg and then was a butcher.Sanders' mother was a devout Christian and strict parent, continuously warning her children of "the evils of alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and whistling on Sundays. When his father died his mother went to work at a cannery and Harland had to take care of his younger siblings. That's where he first learned how to cook and was apparently a pretty good chef with vegetables and bread. When his mother remarried to a Mr. William Broaddus, whom Harland couldn’t stomach, he moved out at age 13.

From that point Harland held jobs as a farm hand, a horse carriage painter, a streetcar conductor, an army officer, a blacksmith helper, a Steam train ash pan cleaner, a fireman for Illinois Central Railroad, a lawyer, an insurance salesman, started a ferry boat company, started a lamp manufacturing business, was a tire company salesman, a service station manager, a motel owner, a cafateria manager and then...started Kentucky fried chicken in 1959 at 69 years old.

When Harland passed away in 1980 their were 6,000 KFC’s around the world.
