Colonel Harland David Sanders was an American businessman, best known for founding fast food chicken restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken and later acting as the company’s brand ambassador and symbol. His name and image are still symbols of the company.
Harland David Sanders was born on the 9th or September 1890, in Henryville, Indiana, United States. He was the first child to his parents, David and Margaret Sanders, who were devout Christians. Harland’s father was a farmer who worked on his 80-acre farmland, until he had an accident that broke his leg, making him unfit to continue working on the farm.
Harland’s mother was a strict parent who frequently warned her children of the dangers of gambling, drugs, alcoholism, and other negative practices. When Harland became 5 years old, his father died, leaving him and siblings to be looked after by their mother alone.
In a bid to provide for her children in the absence of her husband, Harland’s mother got a job in a tomato cannery. As the first child, Harland was responsible for looking after his siblings while their mother was at work.
