KFC announced Wednesday that to raise awareness for World Hunger Relief efforts, it shut the doors of its two most historic locations - Colonel Sanders' first restaurant in Corbin, Ky., and the original KFC franchise in Salt Lake City.

Why don’t they give away food in a third world country?
Wait, you mean there aren’t any KFC branches in those countries? How could that be?
If someone really wanted to combat world hunger, they airdrop some sniper rifles into dictatorships.
For 1 hour.
I thought KFC was on the food nannies hit list?
When I read this I was in shock about the closing of the Corbin KFC. After a few phone calls the KFC in Corbin just closed for 1 hour!! They did not make any changes to the KFC. I just wish this would have been worded different so no one else thinks we have lost the KFC in Corbin.
expect a riot from the cows.
I guess the real story here is that once again, a headline is written that totally misleads the reader.
“Eat more Chikin...”
And that helps "raise awareness" about world hunger... how???
(You have to BUY the doughnuts)
Not that you care; ... but...
Right next door, is a new Thai Restaurant & drive through? that used to be, years ago, ..... Dunkin’ Doughnuts. There is still hope that someday a KFC will return.
I have a friend who works for Yum Brands, the parent franchiser of Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Wingstreet, and Long John Silver’s.
They are growing in China at an unbelievable rate.
She said it will become their primary biz location.
I always figured that in case of alien attack the Big Chicken would come alive to defend Georgia from the space menace.
I remember eating at my first KFC in Western Tennessee in 1965. Man, that stuff was good! Today it’s just too darned salty.
How on Earth did an editor let this headline go to press?
In 1975 I worked at a radio station and the local KFC advertised with us. Back then the flour and ingredients were mixed on site. The manager offered to give me the secret recipe. I never got around to getting it from him. Regretted it ever since.
That being said, his life was very hard. He didn't succeed at anything until he turned 65 and started KFC with his first Social Security check. He'd certainly known what it was like to be hungry, and one of the requirements of a KFC franchise owner is to never turn away a hungry man.
Another classic example of astoundingly-bad, misleading reporting!
I’m too lazy to do it but can someone put up a still of Kramer when he became addicted to Kenny’s Chicken!
‘How on Earth did an editor let this headline go to press?’
Couldn’t possibly be more clear - he’s an idiot.
It doesn’t matter if journalists are literate. It only matters that they “make a difference”.
The KFC nearest my office closed and became a What-A-Burger.
Neither reporter nor the editor are literate.
If any company wants to go from delivering a product or service to dishing up Political Correctness, I’ll gladly help them close a few more locations by not dealing with them. Just shut up and sing! (or whatever)
Yeah and they waste money advertizing “chicken butts” on college campuses instead, Col. Sanders is rolling in his grave: BTW I HATE Their nee “So Good” Campaign!~
