In which state was the first Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise opened?
Colonel Harland Sanders began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, under the name Sanders Court & Café. Sanders franchised his recipe to his friend Pete Harman, and the first “Kentucky Fried Chicken” was opened in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1952. It was there that Harman’s restaurant pioneered the famous bucket container and it was Harman who coined the name, “Kentucky Fried Chicken.” It was Harman who also trademarked the phrase “It’s finger lickin’ good”, which eventually became the company slogan.
The correct answer is Utah.
