A. Louisiana

B. Kentucky

C. California

D. Utah


Though Harland Sanders (“the Colonel”) was originally from Kentucky, it wasn’t until he franchised his recipe for pressure-fried chicken to a restaurateur in Salt Lake City that it became known as Kentucky-fried chicken. Pete Harman, owner of Harman’s Café, changed the name from Southern-fried chicken to Kentucky-fried chicken after buying the secret recipe to make it stand out.
