Harland "Colonel" Sanders
By: Sam Liepert
From an early age he learned self-reliance and developed a love of work, and became super hardworking. He had to cook his own meals when he was 6 years old, for his dad died and he was home alone a lot when his mom was at work. Not only did he have to take care of himslef, but also he was responsible for cooking and taking care of his younger siblings. At age 10 he was already working multiple jobs to support his family. From a buisiness standpoint, he was considered a "perfectionist". Combining his cooking skills and buisiness skills, he strting his fried chicken buisiness and sold his first franchise in 1964.
Colonel became so successful because he was a super hard working man and he had a very special cooking talent and his "finger lickin' good" fried chicked recipe. He made a smart risk to close his original fried chicken resturant to start franchising it all around the world...and it worked.
