How KFC Got Started

A Story About How KFC Got Started

 Harland  dropped out of grade school and ran away from home after his dad died.  He was going from job to job and place to place for many years. He bounced around taking whatever work he could find.  During the depression He opened a tiny restaurant and serving meals in his gas station in a small kentucky town.

The little restaurant became so popular that he had to expand to a building across the street. Fire destroyed that place a few years later, but Harland didn't give up. He rebuilt it. His kentucky fried chicken made from a secret recipe of eleven herbs and spices became so popular, the governor of the state made Harland Sanders an honorary Kentucky colonel.

But still there was no coasting, even for the Colonel. He was in his sixties, nearing retirement age when a new highway bypass took traffic out of his little town.  His business went down to nothing. He was forced to shut down the restaurant.

After he sold his business and paid his debts, Colonel Sanders only had $105, He hit the road, going from town to town with his chicken fryer in the back of his truck, selling his chicken to other restaurants.

Word got around quickly that Colonel Sander's chicken was finger-lickin' good! By the time he was seventy years old, Colonel had Kentucky Friend Chicken restaurants all over the United States and canada. Today there are more then eleven thousand KFCs all around the world.

This story shows even Harland had ruff times and life seemed to treat him harshly. He could easily have felt he got the short end of the stick during those hard times.

Far as a business goes I enjoy having  Plexus Slim as my business. 

I have a chance to help others in many ways and I like that about Plexus. I enjoy doing things on my time and not on a 9 to 5 schedule. I like the fact that I can make money for myself and not make someone else more money. 

I was working for several companies before where they keep you at a low wages and if you worked to much they cut your hrs. No raises and no over time just barely making it paycheck to paycheck. 

I did work in security where you work alot of hrs and can make good money if you like to do nothing but work. I worked so much I had no life. My fun time was pranking other guards on the phone or when we worked next door from each other. 

If you ask me that gets old real fast to be  limited on things. I don't like to be limited on anything. I get tired of barely making it so when Plexus came along I figure hey here I get two for the price of one. You can't beat that! 

My health is better, I no longer get the shakes everyday because of my hypoglycemia. I get help with my nerve damage as well. 

My doctors gave me neurontions for my nerve damage but I was taking two 3 times a day and with the nerve health support by the sea I can take less and get better results. Plus it restores your nerves not cover it up.

So if you would like to get your health back to normal, if you would like to make all the money you want, if you would like to enjoy life more and do more in your life  come and join us at

Thank You for reading and God Bless
