It’s been a hot minute since we last saw the infamous KFC Colonel. The fried-chicken chain is bringing the colonel out of retirement and back into the spotlight in honor of its most recent overhaul.
Thankfully, the iconic Kentuckian didn’t get a modernized, hipster makeover.
In an effort to rebrand the image, KFC is reviving the chicken salesman with a slightly updated look. This goes in hand with KFC’s across the country going through major redesigns of interiors.
Along with the new look of the restaurants, KFC is adding a new items to the menu. This includes Kentucky Baked Beans (made with baked beans and pieces of shredded chicken), Dole Classic Lemonade and tangy creamy Finger Lickin‘ Good Sauce.
Chicken buckets and boxes will also feature a new, updated look.
Like most iconic characters, Harland Sanders has gone through a bit of an evolution throughout the years. The Colonel began as a farmhand, then an army mule-tender, a locomotive fireman, an up-and-coming lawyer, a politician and many other jobs. Though, most of us have just come to know him as the elderly gentleman in an all-white suit.
