KFC Corporation, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the few brands in America that can boast about having a rich, 59-year history of success and innovation.
In fact, KFC is the world's most popular chicken restaurant chain, specializing in Original Recipe®, Extra Crispy, Colonel's Crispy Strips® and Honey BBQ Wings®, with home-style sides and freshly made chicken sandwiches. Since its founding by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1952, KFC has been serving customers delicious, already prepared complete family meals at affordable prices. There are over 15,000 KFC outlets in 105 countries and territories around the world.
An enterprising businessman and restaurateur named Jim Patterson returns from a vacation on the coast where he'd experienced a truly exceptional Fish and Chips meal. His vision was simple: Bring this unique seafood experience from the coast to the rest of America so they can experience it, too.
The next several decades saw Long John Silver's expand across the country. With our iconic steeple-roofed Cape Cod restaurants and one-of-a-kind menu, Long John Silver?s introduced more and more guests to great-tasting fish, chicken, shrimp and more.
Our new journey began two years ago when Long John Silver's was purchased by a newly created group of owners and operator people who had been part of the Long John Silver's family for decades, including the founder himself and his son.
