KFC Kentucky Fried Chicken Company Vector Logo Download
Based in Louisville, Kentucky, KFC is known worldwide as a chain of fast food restaurants. Founded originally by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1952, the restaurant was a wholly owned subsidiary of Tricon from 1997–2002, but changed hands to Yum! Brands in 2002. The chain also advertises itself as Poulet Frit Kentucky or PFK in the province of Quebec in Canada. KFC primarily sells chicken in form of pieces, wraps, salads and sandwiches. While its primary focus is fried chicken, KFC also offers a line of roasted chicken products, sides and desserts.
The KFC company took the abbreviated from its name Kentucky Fried Chicken. Starting in April 2007, the company began using its original appellation of Kentucky Fried Chicken again for its signage, packaging and advertisements in the United States as part of a new corporate re-branding program. Additionally, the company continues to use the abbreviation KFC freely in its advertising. Internationally the company is still known as KFC
By the late 1990s, the stylized likeness of Colonel Sanders as the KFC logo had been modified. KFC ads began featuring an animated version of “the Colonel” voiced by Randy Quaid with a lively and enthusiastic attitude. He would often start out saying “The Colonel here!” and moved across the screen with a cane in hand.
