Road Trip: SLC for the first KFC

Colonal Sanders's suit. His ACTUAL suit. ACTUALLY.

Did you know that the first Kentucky Fried Chicken, or KFC (Kitchen Fresh Chicken??) was in Utah? Most people are surprised or incredulous when they here this interesting Utah factoid. Two years ago they tore down the original one (On State Street near 3900 S. in SLC) and built a new fangled one, and it is chock full of KFC memorabilia.

Does anyone remember the jingle, "KFC has an all you can eat buffet. What did you say?..."

No, but I remember back when KFC actually stood for "Kentucky Fried Chicken!"

Those were the days.

Never knew that. I always thought it was from KY.
