The Cook Becomes a Colonel
It wasn’t until 1930, when Sanders was 40 years old, that he decided to take his love for cooking to the next level. At that time, he was operating a service station in Corbin, Kentucky, and began cooking for hungry travelers who stopped in for gas.
There was no restaurant initially and so patrons were welcomed and served at Sander’s own dining table in the station's humble living quarters. This was when he invented home meal replacement, the concept of selling complete meals to busy, time-strapped families.
