Backgrounds of Famous American Restaurants
It is a fact that many of the famous American restaurants were started by either individuals or married couples. Many people know of the name Colonel Harland Sanders who started a very famous chicken brand. It was in his gas station in Corbin, Kentucky that Sanders started serving meals. One dessert factory was founded by a couple named Oscar and Evelyn Overton, and it was Evelyn who was baking from her kitchen.

In the age of forty, Colonel Sanders began cooking for those travellers buying fuel in gas station in Corbin, Kentucky, and later on, these people started coming because of Sanders cooked meals. With the expanding demand of his cooked food, Sanders opened a restaurant across the street of his gas station, that accommodated one hundred and forty two people. To cook his chicken, Colonel would pressure cook a fresh chicken thus cooking it faster. Sanders was able to develop his secret eleven herbs and spices that he used to coat his chickens, and this until now are being used in all of the restaurant’s recipes. The company of Colonel became a franchise after 1952.

But Evelyn closed her shop to become a stay at home mom and just supplied her cakes to nearby restaurants. When the family moved to Los Angeles later, they opened a 700 square foot store as their first cheesecake business.

There are more than 150 restaurants of this cheesecake brand, and it showed to people that American dream really do come true.
