Colonel Sanders, the great owner of the KFC was a school dropout at 6th grade. At the age of 65, a new highway diverted traffic away from his restaurant leaving Sanders with only his secret fried chicken recipe and a Social Security cheque.
So he decided not to fry chickens but sell his secret recipe. He was rejected over 1,000 times. Then he found a partner with whom he build the KFC franchise powerhouse and today the brand operates in more than 115 countries.0
