KFC’s Corporate Address for Comments
P.O. Box 725489
Atlanta, GA 31139

Dear KFC,

I am glad you don’t make cheeseburgers. I don’t think you would be very good at it. I don’t eat red meat so I really shouldn’t care, but I am glad all the same.

When I was a kid your restaurants were called Kentucky Fried Chicken. Aren’t you afraid that someday people won’t know what KFC stands for? Why didn’t you just change your name to something like, “Good Chicken?”

1 Originally this letter contained my home address, but I no longer give that out every since David Thorne stopped by for a “friendly game of Parcheesi.” Parcheesi!

Dear Christopher Jorgensen:

Thank you for contacting KFC regarding our name change.

KFC changed its name from Kentucky Fried Chicken” to “KFC”, in 1991. In the early ‘90’s, our menu expanded to include non-fried chicken. As such, our name changed accordingly to “KFC.”

However, in April of 2005, KFC opened a new vision store in Louisville, Kentucky, where the words Kentucky Fried Chicken are proudly displayed on both the inside and outside. This new Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant is part of a plan to open another 50 restaurants this year corporate and franchisee), to see how to best serve our many different customer bases.

We thank you for your interest in KFC and hope this information is helpful.

If I were sending this letter today I would be asking KFC how many people the “Double Down” has killed. I am guessing at least a couple. i’ve never had one (yet).
