KFC began with Colonel Harland Sanders. He discovered his penchant for cooking when he was only 9 years old. Through the years he grew up to become a personage the world knows as Colonel Sanders, founder of KFC.
Success did not come easy, however, as at the tender age of six, after his father's death, he was responsible for taking care of his younger siblings by cooking for them while his mother joined the workforce in order to support the family. It was through those years that Sanders discovered his passion for cooking.
In 1930, at the age of 40, Sanders owned a service station in Corbin, Kentucky. But since he loved to cook, he began preparing dishes to patrons that stopped by for petrol; serving them from his own dining table in his modest living quarters.
By 1935, his contribution to the state's cuisine reached a high-point as Governor Ruby Laffoon made him a member of the Honourable Order of Kentucky Colonels. More and more people started coming strictly for his food as he has perfected his secret blend fo 11 herbs and spices and the basic cooking technique that is still used today.
Sanders reached celebrity status in 1952, when he decided to franchise his famous Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe to the rest of America. By the early 90's, that special recipe reached Brunei.
Today, KFC Brunei continues to serve finger lickin' good, succulent pieces of chicken. The flavourful blends of 11 herbs and spices provide for KFC's delicious aroma. With the chicken's natural juices sealed-in, leaving a special mouth watering taste that cannot be replaced, KFC prides itself as a fast-food restaurant that gives customers great tasting chicken with a selection of home-styled side dishes and desserts to make a wholesome, complete and satisfying meal.
The first KFC branch to open in Brunei was in 1992 at Plaza Athirah. This particular branch to this day is still one of the most popular KFC outlets in the whole of Brunei.
