Famous Amigo Owner - Colonel Sanders

Harland "Colonel" Sanders (September 9, 1890 – December 16, 1980) was founder of the popular fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken. 

In 1930, Sanders was operating a service station in Corbin, Kentucky, and saw a need for quick and easy meals for families on the go. He began serving what he called "Sunday Dinner, Seven Day A Week."

Sanders began using an Amigo scooter in the latter years of his life, possibly due to a leukemia diagnosis shortly before his death.

Since its start at a service station in 1930, KFC has rapidly grown to one of the most popular fast food restaurants in the world. KFC continues to use the Colonel's likeness as the core of their branding.
