World's First KFC

Saves: 14
Check-ins: 9
Surprisingly, the first KFC franchise was born in Utah, not Kentucky! Harland Sanders sold Pete Harman his secret recipe and history was made! Today, KFC operates in 141 countries, which is a staggering number when you consider there are 195 sovereign nations. Mind-blowing to note that it all started here in Utah with a handshake. The friendship between the Colonel and Pete Harman is commemorated in bronze, right outside the restaurant. (Submitted by Henry Calderon)
