KFC locations that offer an all-you-can-eat buffet typically serve the same foods that are on the regular menu, including main courses such as friend chicken and sides such as mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and coleslaw. The specific menus of each KFC restaurant vary by location and region.
KFC, originally referred to as Kentucky Fried Chicken, is an American fast food chain founded in 1930 in North Corbin, Kentucky. The original restaurant, called Sanders Court and Cafe, was opened by Harland Sanders to sell food during the Great Depression. Over time, the success of Sanders' establishment grew, and he made the decision to establish the entity as a franchise. The first franchise location was opened in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1952. Sanders' image was used as a mascot for the chain.
As of February 2015, KFC is the second largest restaurant chain in the world by annual sales volume, with over 18,000 locations in 118 countries and territories. It was one of the first American restaurant chains to expand internationally, opening locations in Mexico, the United Kingdom and Canada during the 1960s. The chain is part of a international food and beverage management company called Yum! Brands, which also owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.
