A couple of weeks ago I visited the KFC headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky for a KFC Fresh Blogger Tour.  The trip was truly a unique experience and I learned some wonderful things about KFC that I am glad to be able to share with you.

KFC Fresh Blogger Tour

A few things I learned about KFC:

KFC really does serve FRESH food.
KFC uses fresh, never frozen chicken, and hand prepares their fried chicken right there in the restaurant, wtih minimal ingredients, always fresh for the customer!  While we were in Louisville we visited Louisville’s finest KFC and watched an employee go through the entire process of how they make their chicken fresh for their customers.

KFC cares.
I was very pleased to learn that KFC has given over 300 students over $5 million dollars in scholarship via the KFC’s Colonel’s Scholarship program. I was in tears as we were shown a video of a mother-daughter reunion KFC organized. Colonel Sanders was a very generous man and enjoyed giving to those less fortunate than him. I love to learn how huge companies like KFC make an effort to promote education and family values.

KFC provides consistant training.
All KFC store employees are trained to prepare and serve their chicken exactly the same way, every single time. :: The video above demonstrates how KFC Original Recipe chicken is made. After we saw the whole process, a corporate trainer explained that each employee is trained to prepare KFC food exactly the same way, regardless of the location. There are several training guides in place to ensure that the chicken looks and tastes right every time a customer orders it. It’s nice to think that we can rely on the consistency of the great food we expect every time we visit KFC!

The KFC Fresh Tour included a tour of Colonel Sanders Museum. A very realistic, motion-activated animatronic Colonel Sanders greeted us with a brief story of his life. I even got to sit at Colonel Sanders desk!
