“In 1930, in a humble service station in Corbin, Kentucky, 40-year old Harland Sanders began feeding hungry travelers,” KFC’s website said. “Sanders spent the next nine years (now that’s dedication) perfecting his secret blend of 11 herbs and spices, as well as the basic cooking technique we still use today.”
The Original Recipe is so famous and coveted that its original copy is locked away in a secret vault, a press release from the company said.
