How Some American Restaurants Became Famous
Individuals or married couples were said to have founded the many famous American restaurants of today. Many people know of the name Colonel Harland Sanders who started a very famous chicken brand. Sanders started serving meals from the gas station he owned in Corbin, Kentucky. A dessert factory was founded by couples Oscar and Evelyn Overton, wherein Evelyn was baking from her kitchen. Another famous fast food now was founded in the 1980s by Bill and T.J. Palmer. A great seafood restaurant was opened by a certain Bill Darden at a very young age of 19.
The chicken restaurant started by Colonel Harland Sanders is now one of the largest restaurant businesses around the globe. This restaurant can be seen in more than eighty countries all over the world. In Corbin, Kentucky, Colonel Sanders started cooking at the age of forty, for his customers buying fuel in his gas station, and eventually these customers came for his cooked meals. Later on, Sanders expanded his business by opening a restaurant, across the street of his gas station, that seated one hundred and forty two customers. To cook his chicken, Colonel would pressure cook a fresh chicken thus cooking it faster. As a secret to his cooking, Sanders developed the eleven herbs and spices to coat his chickens, and this secret is still being implemented in all of the restaurants’ chicken recipes. Colonel’s company later on became a franchise after 1952.
The dessert factory that was founded by Oscar and Evelyn Overton stated with the opening of their cheesecake shop in Detroit, Michigan in the late 1940s. But Evelyn closed her shop to become a stay at home mom and just supplied her cakes to nearby restaurants. The family later moved to Los Angeles where they opened a new 700 foot square store. As their baking reputation grew, they purchased a larger bakery while Evelyn continued to create 20 kinds of cheesecakes and other desserts, and these items were sold to nearby states. There are more than 150 restaurants of this cheesecake brand, and it showed to people that American dream really do come true.
