The Koreatown landmark has been called everything from ugly to beautiful and everything else in between. Often misunderstood as being downright wacky, the dynamic and attention grabbing building was designed by architect and art publisher Elyse Grinstein and Frank Gehry protégé Jeffrey Daniels.

Some have dubbed this the most beautiful KFC, and it just might be, with floor-to-ceiling glass and a cathedral wood ceiling. Formerly a bank, this KFC storefront also has a ‘Vault Door’ inside that houses the Colonel’s iconic blend of 11 herbs and spices.

The OG location that started it all, Sanders Cafe & Museum is where The Colonel developed his secret recipe and birthed the legend that is Kentucky Fried Chicken. This location has been restored to its original 1940s aesthetic so fans can get a feel of its bygone vibes.
