Yup. Regardless of whether Brown Jr. got one or not, boosters are especially vital for his age group.

He was the original blueprint for KFC but the Colonel didn't like the scale up quality. Some of the southern restaurant locations were very good with legendary food.

"ON MARCH 7, 1964, Brown and his partner, Jack Massey, paid $2 million for the company, keeping Colonel Sanders on as the genial pitchman. Brown launched Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets all over the world, and his franchising plan became the model for an entire industry. By 1970, the company was taking in $700 million a year and was the largest restaurant chain in the world - bigger than McDonald's."

From what I've read of him, Sanders was only genial for a few seconds at a time in commercials

He was upset about the quality of things like the gravy and potatoes when he visited restaurants. I think the franchise scale up was sloppy.

There were several sit-down restaurants in Georgia/Tennessee/Florida (Davis Bros.) that was a franchisee and had amazingly delicious food for a good price. It was one of the few places that had better chicken than home-cooked. Some were large and occasionally gave tours of the kitchen (mostly for women). That was probably the Colonel's vision, but what they got was cookie cutter fast food.

They makes sense. The transformation to Yum! Brands put the bean counters in charge.

He's like a minor god in Japan. The story of the "Curse of the Colonel" on a baseball team is pretty funny.

Ooh, I hated the Colonel with his wee beady eyes and that smug grin, "Oh you're gonna buy my chicken, eh?"
